Abstract

Authors studied 37 children with tuberous sclerosis and epilepsy. Fifty-nine per cent presented infantile spasms at onset. 13/37 were seizures free (mean follow-up 6,5 years). The remaining 24 patients showed partial epilepsy and 10% showed Lennox-Gastaut syndrome. We studied prognosis factors for epilepsy and mental retardation. The most important factors were: early onset of seizures independent from the type (partial seizures or infantile spasms), multiple cortical lesions and severity of epilepsy refractory to therapy.
