Epilepsy is a chronic neurological disorder result in firing of the neurons due to channel defect or neuro-transmitters disturbance. Its clinical presentation is guided by the site of the abnormal neurons, and distribution pattern of the neuronal discharge. Treatment is mainly by antiepileptic drugs which have a good prognosis. However the remission and relapse is determined by some clinical and genetic factors. Many genes participate in the response to antiepileptic by affecting the metabolism, transporter, or the drug target. Sodium channel type alpha 2 gene (SCN2A) which is located in chromosome 2 encodes many antiepileptic drug receptors and incriminated in some refractory epilepsies. Science intractable epilepsy is disturbing life and consuming time early prediction of outcome will help in treating patient. More than that, using sodium channel blockers, or other modality of treatment such as ketogenic diet, deep vagus nerve stimulation, or surgery will improve outcome.
