Welcome to the International League Against Epilepsy
The world's preeminent association of health care professionals and scientists working toward a world where no person's life is limited by epilepsy
A message from the ILAE Executive Committee

Ha fallecido el Dr. Diógenes Santos Viloria, reconocido neurólogo y epileptólogo dominicano que dedicó su vida a trabajar por los pacientes con este padecimiento.
