Abstract

Early predictive factors of seizure frequency were evaluated in 72 cured cases of benign partial epilepsy with rolandic spikes. Three groups were considered: Group I, single seizure, 11 patients; Group II, 2 to 6 seizures, 40 patients; Group III, more than 6 seizures, 21 patients. Statistically significant predictors of low seizure frequency were the occurrence of generalized convulsive seizures as the only epileptic manifestation and long intervals between the first and second seizure. It is suggested that patients with first seizure cannot be pharmacologically treated without excessive risk. In fact five patients of Group I received no antiepileptic drugs. Whether a second seizure occurs, the onset of the antiepileptic treatment may be further delayed if predictors of rare seizure recurrence exist.
