Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME) is one of the most common types of idiopathic generalised epilepsy. It starts in teenage years, yet it is frequently misdiagnosed or diagnosed very late, thereby resulting in inadequate therapy plan and worsening of symptoms. Timely diagnosis of JME is crucial for the correct management of symptoms and prevention of disease development. In this case report we describe a case of a 33-year-old woman who did not receive appropriate care due to a late diagnosis of her JME condition.
