Understanding LGS Diagnosis in Adulthood: Transatlantic Perspectives


The EMJ Podcast | Bonus Episode

Lennox–Gastaut syndrome (LGS) is a rare, severe, and progressive childhood-onset epilepsy characterised by recurrent seizures. LGS can be challenging to diagnose due to multiple aetiologies, varying clinical presentation at onset, and a lack of specific biological markers. These challenges can be compounded in adulthood due to the evolving presentation of LGS over time, and incomplete medical histories. In this insightful podcast, experts Steve Chung, University of Arizona, Phoenix, USA; and Rhys Thomas, Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle, UK, explore the identification, diagnosis, and management of LGS in both children and adults based on their experiences in real-life clinical settings.
