Abstract The research observes epidemiology of epilepsy and epileptic syndromes and risk factors at the population of the middle Siberia (Krasnoyarsk region and the Tuva Republic, Russian Federation). The analysis concludes that Siberia (on example the Krasnoyarsk region and the Tuva Republic) is region with high prevalence of epilepsy (comparable with the occurrence of epilepsy in the Europe countries). Though it s lower when comparing the epilepsy prevalence in developing countries. Prevalence of all forms of epilepsy was higher at children and teenagers. High prevalence of idiopathic epilepsy was in childhood populations in the Krasnoyarsk region and the Tuva Republic. Post-stroke epilepsy dominated in structure epilepsy with late onset in Krasnoyarsk region, including Krasnoyarsk city.
