JUVENILE ABSENCE EPILEPSY


Alternate names

JUVENILE ABSENCE EPILEPSY Is also known as jae1, jae

Description

Juvenile absence epilepsy (JAE) is a genetic epilepsy with onset occurring around puberty. JAE is characterized by sporadic occurrence of absence seizures, frequently associated with a long-life prevalence of generalized tonic-clonic seizures (GTCS) and sporadic myoclonic jerks.

Most common symptoms of JUVENILE ABSENCE EPILEPSY

  • Seizures
  • Myoclonus
  • Generalized tonic-clonic seizures
  • Abnormality of eye movement
  • Generalized myoclonic seizures

JUVENILE MYOCLONIC EPILEPSY


Alternate names

JUVENILE MYOCLONIC EPILEPSY Is also known as janz syndrome, juvenile myoclonus epilepsy, jme, myoclonic epilepsy, juvenile, petit mal, impulsive

Description

Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy is the most common hereditary idiopathic generalized epilepsy syndrome and is characterized by myoclonic jerks of the upper limbs on awakening, generalized tonic-clonic seizures manifesting during adolescence and triggered by sleep deprivation, alcohol intake, and cognitive activities, and typical absence seizures (30% of cases).

Most common symptoms of JUVENILE MYOCLONIC EPILEPSY

  • Intellectual disability
  • Seizures
  • Depressivity
  • Myoclonus
  • Aggressive behavior
