There can be different causes of epilepsy. An imbalance of neurotransmitters or nerve-signalling chemicals, congenital abnormalities, trauma or head injury, genetic conditions, prenatal or perinatal brain damage, stroke, brain tumour, brain infection in diseases such as meningitis, encephalitis or neurocysticercosis, etc., are some of the causes.
It is important to note that every condition mentioned above does not necessarily lead to epilepsy. Epilepsy is known to occur more often in these conditions than in their absence.
