Epilepsy & Seizures
Epilepsy with generalized tonic-clonic seizures alone
Epilepsy with generalized tonic-clonic seizures alone is probably a syndrome of idiopathic/genetic generalized epilepsy but of uncertain boundaries. Onset is usually in late adolescence, and genetic predisposition is common. Generalized onset tonic-clonic seizures may occur at any time, though those happening after awakening are more characteristic and better studied. Prognosis is markedly variable.
