The Idiopathic Generalized Epilepsy (IGE) is a common genetically determined group of syndromes mainly described in children and adolescence with no structural and anatomic cause, usually with an excellent prognosis and good response to therapy. However, IGE may persist in adult life with atypical electro-clinical features (i.e. drug-resistance, GPFA, tonic seizures) or rarely demonstrate a lennox-like evolution with a relative prognosis. We describe a family with four members affected by IGE, in one case with catastrophic evolution.
