Sixty-six children (36 M, 30 F) suffering for refractory epilepsy received LTG as add-on therapy. Twenty-four children (36%) reported a significant decrease of seizures, forty-two (64%) withdrew the drug because of unchanged seizures. The well-responded patients had absences, tonic seizures, partial seizures and spasms. The mainly represented epileptic syndrome in this group was the Lennox-Gastaut.
