Early onset absence epilepsy (eoae)

Early Onset Absence Epilepsy (EOAE) is part of our Childhood Epilepsy Panel (NGS). Click here to access a complete list of the genes covered in this panel.




This type of epilepsy is characterized by absence seizures, which are usually short episodes (lasting for a few seconds) and characterized by a blank or "absent" stare. In the early onset form, these seizures appear in children below age 3. Around 10% of these cases are of genetic origin, due to a mutation in the SLC2A1 gene.
