Özet

Purpose: Photosensitive epilepsy (PSE) is a form of reflex epilepsy characterized by seizures triggered by light. Genetic factors play an important role and some studies have indicated a possible role of the Bromodomain-Containing Protein 2 (BRD2) gene. Our aim was to investigate the relationship between PSE and mutations of the BRD2 gene.
