Epilepsy manifests with recurrent seizures.

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX,
Thanks for being on healthcaremagic.com.
I am Dr.Ajay Panwar,a neurologist,here to answer your query.

Of course,recurrent seizure is a disorder.It is a phenomenal manifestation of the disease 'Epilepsy'.
Epilepsy can be genetic/idiopathic or acquired due to secondary/structural brain causes.
So,exact classification of the disorder gets established after investigations-Electroencephalogram(EEG) and Magnetic resonance imaging(MRI) of brain.

Hope this helps.I shall be glad to have you in follow-up with further questions.

Regards
Dr.Ajay Panwar,
MD,DM(Neurology)
