Abstract

One hundred twenty patients with generalized or partial idiopathic epilepsy or partial cryptogenic epilepsy, between 6 and 18 years of age, answered a questionnaire about their participation in sports. Twenty-three patients did not practice any sport, ten of them upon physician's advice because of epilepsy. The rest of the patients participated in one or more sports and 17 in competition. Some patients had difficulty obtaining an authorization to pratice sports. Only 7 patients, all with drug-resistant partial cryptogenic epilepsy, had seizures during sports activity with no consequences. Our research shows how sports risks for children with epilepsy are extremely limited.
