Seizures are a frequent symptom in metabolic disorders, although metabolic disorders are rarely found to be the cause of epilepsy. A precise diagnosis might not only influence treatment, but it might also call for counseling of the family, even if there are no direct therapeutic consequences. We review the main characteristics of epilepsy in metabolic disorders with regard to energy metabolism, toxic effects, neurotransmitters, and vitamins.
Key Words: Epilepsy, Seizure, Metabolic Disorder
