In some types of epilepsy symptoms may manifest which can lead to diagnostic confusion between epilepsy and other conditions (e.g. Landau Kleffner Syndrome and Autistic Spectrum Disorder). In other diagnoses with features of neurological deficits (e.g. Fragile X) epilepsy may be a co-morbid condition. In such cases it is advisable to obtain a differential diagnosis from a consultant neurologist.
