Abstract

Seventy-six newly diagnosed children with partial non idiopathic epilepsy were followed for at least 2 years (range 2-5 years) after starting monotherapy. The time dependent cumulative probability to attain a complete seizure control after the beginning of treatment was 51 % by 1 year and 42% by 2 years. It was significantly related with the age at onset of the seizures and with the mental status; the last factor resulted as the only significant factor on the multivariate analysis. The probability to attain a 2 year terminal remission was 63% and was significantly related to the mental status at the onset of treatment and with the normality of CT scan or MRI.
