Whether genetic factors contribute to acquired epilepsies has long been controversial. Supporters observe that, among individuals exposed to seemingly the same brain insult, only a minority develops unprovoked seizures. Yet, only in relatively recent years have studies started to build a case for genetic contributions. Here, we appraise this emerging evidence, by providing a critical review of studies published in the field.
