Thus, there is a need for the provision of accurate information about epilepsy to both these groups. Additional studies on epilepsy-associated stigma employing various methodological approaches are required.

Conclusion: PCDH19 is a major causative gene in patients with epilepsy and further data is required to gain a better understanding of phenotype-genotype correlation. In addition to gene sequencing, deletion/duplication analysis will improve the molecular diagnosis in patients with clinical findings.
