Overview

Some of the preventable etiologies for epilepsy that should be considered in primary prevention include central nervous system (CNS) infection, CNS parasitosis, pre- and perinatal brain insults, stroke, and traumatic brain injury (TBI). Some factors that can perticipate or provoke seizure may include excessive sleep deprivation, alcohol use, illicit drug use, some medications that reduce the seizure threshold, toxins, homeostasis abnormality due to organ failure, metabolic abnormalities, and medical and surgical histories that may be important in assessing the patient’s risk for future seizures.
