Help

Testing is recommended for patients with syndromic or non-syndromic epilepsy for which a genetic etiology is suspected. This test sequences the most comprehensive list of genes related to epilepsy, but reporting is limited to variants well-matched with the patient's phenotype and mode of inheritance. This test is appropriate when sequential exome testing may be desired.
