There are about 5000 children in Finland with epilepsy, of which 800 start their medication before the age of 15. Childhood epilepsies encompass a group of disorders characterized by a tendency to experience epileptic seizures. Epileptic seizures are sudden temporary disruptions in the electrical activity of the brain.
