Epilepsy & Seizures
Generalized onset tonic-clonic seizures
Generalized onset tonic-clonic seizures are the most dramatic, severe, and common seizures of syndromes of idiopathic generalized epilepsy. They manifest with violent generalized convulsions, loss of consciousness, and marked autonomic disturbances. They are usually spontaneous, but they may also be provoked by external, mainly photic, stimuli. They are often associated with severe complications that may also be fatal.
