Abstract

Management of epileptic encephalopathies requires an individualized approach, taking into account seizure impact as well as frequency. Pharmacological options include antiepileptics and hormonal therapy, although nonpharmacological approaches (e.g. ketogenic diet and surgery) can also provide benefits. The most appropriate therapy should be selected on the basis of the epilepsy syndrome and current evidence/consensus.
