The ketogenic diet was developed in the 20s as a treatment for intractable epilepsy in childhood. We present preliminary data of our experience with ten patients affected by refractory epilepsy. The 40% of these patients presented a significative reduction of seizure frequency, especially in patients affected by agyria-pachigyria syndrome. No serious side effects were observed but the management of the diet was difficult.
