[Comment] Cannabidiol for drop seizures in Lennox-Gastaut syndrome

Lennox-Gastaut syndrome is a rare epilepsy with childhood onset and is characterised by multiple seizure types, typically tonic, atonic, and atypical absences in which non-convulsive status epilepticus (atypical absence, tonic, myoclonic, or mixed) is common. Generally, the electroencephalogram shows generalised slow spike-and-wave discharges in wakefulness and sleep and paroxysmal fast rhythms in sleep. Learning and behavioural difficulties are common. Causes include structural or acquired brain lesions, metabolic disease, and genetic abnormalities.
