To supplement more systematic and theoretical textbooks, European neurologists specializing in epilepsy present 61 clinical cases illustrating both common and uncommon forms of epilepsy. Considering diagnosis and treatment in turn, they examine such topics as new onset focal and generalized epilepsy in an elderly patient, epileptic falling seizures associated with seizure-induced cardiac asystole in drug-resistant temporal lobe epilepsy, epileptic negative myoclonus in benign rolandic epilepsy, carefully combining medications for women with gastric reflux, and functional hemispherotomy for drug-resistant post-traumatic epilepsy. There is no index.
