The clinical significance of chromosomal microdeletions and microduplications was predicted based on their gene content, de novo or familial inheritance and accumulated knowledge recorded on public databases. A patient group comprised of 247 cases with epilepsy and its common co-morbidities of developmental delay, intellectual disability, autism spectrum disorders, and congenital abnormalities was reviewed prospectively in a diagnostic setting using a standardized oligo-array CGH platform. Seventy-three (29.6%) had copy number variations (CNVs) and of these 73 cases, 27 (37.0%) had CNVs that were likely causative. These 27 cases comprised 10.9% of the 247 cases reviewed. The range of pathogenic CNVs associated with seizures was consistent with the existence of many genetic determinants for epilepsy. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
