BOF 56
A patient came to see you with her boy friend because of attacks of loss of consciousness with abnormal jerking movements seen by her boyfriend. You diagnosed Epilepsy; all are wrong statements, except one:
1-in the EEG examination paper, the presence of sharp waves will add nothing to the overall diagnosis as it is seen in many other conditions and even normal people
2-you told her that all seizures must be medically treated after the first episode.
3-the lifetime risk of developing a single seizure is 10%
4-you told her that sleep deprivation and mental exhaustion are not precipitating factors for seizure provocation.
5-you told her that up to 70% of patients will develop a second seizure with in a year after the first one
