Patients with epilpesy pose many clinical challenges. Even experienced clinicians occasionally arrive at the point where diagnostic, work-up, treatment, or prognostic thinking becomes blocked. Epilepsy is the fifth volume in the "What Do I Do Now?" series and provides the clinician with the necessary tools to evaluate and treat an epilepsy patient.
