epileptic encephalopathy (ee)


Epileptic Encephalopathy (EE) is is part of our Childhood Epilepsy Panel (NGS). Click here to access a complete list of the genes covered in this panel.




Epileptic encephalopathy (EE) comprises a heterogeneous group (both from clinical and genetic perspectives) of (severe) disorders characterized by seizures, abnormal EEGs (electro-encephalograms) and delay or deterioration in the psychomotor and/or cognitive capacities. In these disorders, the spike and sharp wave (epileptiform) activity on the EEG impairs brain function and is associated with a variety of clinical manifestations (seizures, cognitive and developmental delay or arrest, behavioral problems, attention deficit, psychiatric problems or sleep disorders, etc).
