Authors: Emily C. De Los Reyes, MD; Miriam Nickel, MD; Angela Schulz, MD; Nicola Specchio, MD, PhD; Raymond Wang, MDFaculty and Disclosures


Posted: 30/06/2022

Learners will be better able to use available tools to make an early diagnosis of different epilepsies of metabolic origin.

This activity is intended for a non-US audience of neurologists, pediatricians, and primary care physicians.

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Have increased knowledge regarding the
    • Importance of early diagnosis in determining whether a patient is experiencing epilepsy of metabolic origin
    • Recognizing different clinical subsets that may suggest a metabolic origin for a patient's epilepsy
    • Identifying the optimal treatment approach for different types of epilepsy and for different disease stages
