Answer

Answer

All patients with suspected absence seizures should be examined by a neurologist who has expertise in diagnosing epileptic syndromes. Patients with refractory seizures, especially those with symptomatic epilepsies, may need to be referred to an epileptologist for prolonged EEG video monitoring and medication adjustments.
