Is epilepsy hereditary?

1 Answer

Yes, experts believe that, in many cases, genetic predisposition combined with environmental conditions lead to epilepsy. About 30 to 40 percent of epilepsy is caused by genetic predisposition. First-degree relatives of people with inherited epilepsy have a 2- to 4-fold increased risk for epilepsy.
