Management of epilepsy

Abstract

Figures for the incidence of epilepsy in Malta are not available. The overall figure for epilepsy given by the Royal College of General Practitioners (Reid 1960) is 4.82 per 1,000 population. As there is no reason to expect and difference in the incidence in these Islands, one can expect that there are at least 1,500 epileptics in Malta. This would mean that all general practitioners would, at some time, come across a patient with epilepsy.peer-reviewe
