Interictal

Jump to: navigation, search

Interictal is used to describe the period of time between seizure or convulsion in epilepsy. For most people with epilepsy it corresponds to more than 99% of their life.

The inter-ictal period is often used by neurologists when diagnosing epilepsy since an EEG trace will often show small spikes and other abnormalities, known by neurologists as subclinical seizures.
