Were you looking for more information about Epilepsy? Epilepsie is a common misspelling of epilepsy.
Epilepsy is a disorder in which the normal pattern of neuronal activity in the brain becomes disturbed. This can cause convulsions, muscle spasms, and loss of consciousness. Epilepsy may develop because of an abnormality in brain wiring, an imbalance of nerve-signaling chemicals, or some combination of these factors. Once the condition is diagnosed, seizures often can be controlled with modern medicines and surgical techniques.
