SUDEP refers to the unexpected death of an individual, with a diagnosis of Epilepsy, who dies suddenly, in benign circumstances, without a structural or SUDEP AWAREpngtoxicological cause for death being found at autopsy.

 

It is not a condition or disease, but rather the category to which these types of unexplained deaths of people with Epilepsy are assigned. (The definition excludes people dying in status epilepticus).
