Intracranial Hemorrhage For more information, please visit our Cerebrovascular, Stroke and Endovascular Program site An intracranial hemorrhage is a hemorrhage, or bleeding, within the skull. Epilepsy is usually controlled, but cannot be cured with medication, although surgery may be considered in difficult cases. However, over 30% of people with epilepsy do not have seizure control even with the best available medications. Not all epilepsy syndromes are lifelong – some forms are confined to particular stages of childhood. Epilepsy should not be understood as a single disorder, but rather as syndromic with vastly divergent symptoms but all involving episodic abnormal electrical activity in the brain.
