Epilepsy can be defined clinically as a neurological condition characterized by recurring unprovoked seizures (at least two unprovoked seizures occurring >24 h apart) (1), while a seizure is considered as any clinical event caused by an abnormal electric discharge in the brain and thus epilepsy is the tendency to have recurrent seizures. Epilepsy should be regarded as symptom for underlying brain (2). Epilepsy is the commonest neurological condition affecting people of all ages, race and social class (3) It is one of the most common chronic disorders affecting around 50 million individuals of all ages worldwide (4) In the developed world, onset of new cases occurs most frequently in infants and the elderly;(5) In general, the incidence of epilepsy in developed countries is taken to be around 50 per 100,000 (range 40−70 per 100,000/year)(6) while the incidence of epilepsy in resource-poor countries is generally higher in the range of 100−190 per 100,000/year(7) More recent studies using patient reports from Norway (crude prevalence rate 11.7 per 100; active epilepsy 6.7 per 1000)(8) and Ireland (life prevalence 10 per 1000; treated epilepsy 8.39.0 per 1000)(9) suggest higher prevalence rates in western countries. According to the causal etiology, epilepsy can be divided into 3 categories: idiopathic, acquired (symp-tomatic) and cryptogenic (presumed symptomatic) ,Idiopathic epilepsy mean that cause of epilepsy is completely unknown i.e epilepsy without underlying structural brain lesion or other neurologic signs or symptoms, Acquired epilepsy is epileptic seizures as a result of one or more identifiable structural lesions of the brain. Cryptogenic epilepsy refers to the epilepsy that is believed to be symptomatic, with unidentifiedcause (10-12).
