A Guide to Evaluation, Treatment

and Underwriting Considerations

Epilepsy is categorized as being symptomatic or idiopathic:

If the underlying cause of someone’s epilepsy is known, then it is called symptomatic. Some of the many possible causes of symptomatic epilepsy include structural brain abnormalities, brain trauma, stroke, tumors, and drug intoxication or withdrawal, including alcohol.

A majority of cases of epilepsy are idiopathic, with no known underlying cause. Idiopathic epilepsy can run in families.
