Abstract

Epidemiologic surveys of the last decades suggest that the overall prognosis for seizure control is excellent, with about 80% of the patients with epilepsy eventually achieving remission. Nevertheless, some prospective studies assessing the risk of seizure recurrence in patients in remission of their epilepsy found remarkable percentages of patients which show further unexpected seizures despite achieving long periods of remission. Natural history of epilepsy, and a delicate balance of genetic, acquired and precipitating causes of the seizures possibly changeable throughout the lifetime, might account for this "prognostic fragility".
