Ninety-two patients presenting with a single seizure occurred within 6 months from our first observation have been admitted to the study. Anamnestic, objective and instrumental data were collected using a computerized form aimed to define the main parameters influencing the prognosis. So far 80 subjects were followed for at least one year. Seizure relapse occurred in 22 patients (27,5%); among the considered risk factors only the presence of epileptiform EEG at the onset is significantly correlated with seizure relapse. Moreover recurrence rate was significantly higher in the patients (40 cases) in which, after the first seizures, electroclinical patterns were hard suggesting a well defined epileptic syndrome according to ILAE classification.
