Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy
Also known as Janz syndrome.
Typically manifests first between 12-18 years age.
- Myoclonic (frequently in the morning)
- GTCS (majority patients have this along with myoclonic)
- Absence (1/3 rd can have these)
MCQ point : There is never a complete remission but response to valproate is very good.
