The authors present the results of a long-term follow up of 52 juvenile head-injured patients who showed early epileptic seizures. The purpose of this study is to stress the role of long-term prognosis in the early seizures and to determine in which cases a treatment preventing late seizures in eligible. They consider long-term prognosis as to be favorable. Late epilepsy occurred in 15.3% of the cases and responded favorably to anticonvulsive therapy. They suggest prophylactic treatment in those patients who had loss of consciousness immediately after trauma, recurring seizures, coma and/or surgery.
