Abstract

The management of a patient with seizures involves proper classification, etiologic evaluation, and administration of appropriate therapy. With proper evaluation and management, control of seizures can be expected in the majority of patients. The physician must realize that an epileptic adolescent has intrinsic anxieties and faces social, educational, and vocational restrictions. Failure to deal with these psychosocial problems may result in a greater handicap to the patient than the seizures themselves.
