Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP) is now recognized as the leading cause of mortality associated with epilepsy excluding status epilepticus and underlying etiologies. Despite the importance of the problem and the implications for intervention, SUDEP had not received widespread professional attention in the United States prior to the mid-2000s.

The level of awareness and interest in SUDEP has grown, though, as evidenced by the growing numbers of publications, posters/presentations, and participation in related special interest groups. In addition, there has been a significant rise in the number of inquiries from clinical and basic scientists as well as from patients and families via advocacy organizations.
