We report the results of an antiepileptic drug withdrawal study in 141 patients with cryptogenic (C) and lesional (L) partial epilepsy (PE) seizure- free for 2 to 6 years. The relapse rate varied according to different types of epilepsy and to evidence of lesions (79% of relapse in patients with LPE and 57% of relapse in patients with CPE). There was no statistical significance related to the type of drug administered before withdrawal or the time elapsing between the onset of seizures and the start of therapy.
