Epilepsy remission higher where cause is unknown

  • Comment

Children with newly diagnosed epilepsy where the cause is unknown have a significantly higher rate of remission than those with epilepsy caused by underlying brain damage or disease, according to Dutch research.

The study evaluated epilepsy in 413 children over a 15 year period. At the end of the research the disease was still active in 30 per cent of the children, the majority of which had epilepsy where the cause was known.

The results of the study have been published in Epilepsia, the journal of the International League Against Epilepsy.
