Abstract

The prognostic relevance of interictal EEG in predicting the risk of relapse in epileptic patients undergoing discontinuation of drug treatment has been prospectively evaluated in 79 epileptic patients seizure-free for at least 3 years. The EEG changes during the entire course of the epileptic disease correlated with the clinical outcome. On the contrary, no significant relationship was found between relapse rate and EEG findings at the time of withdrawal, independently of their previous evolution. Finally, the evolution of EEG during and after withdrawal correlated with clinical outcome.
