Epilepsy – Hereditary Risk

October 13, 2021


I’m often asked by my patients whether their children will be at increased risk of developing seizures or epilepsy because they have epilepsy. Fortunately, for the overwhelming majority of people with epilepsy, their children are not at greater risk of having seizures compared to the children of people who don’t have epilepsy. There are some exceptions to that generalization, and there are some genetic epilepsy syndromes. So it’s important that you ask your doctor about this before you have children.
