Seizures complicate many neurosurgical diseases and, in many situations, their prevention is desirable. In an attempt to arrive at a rational approach to the purely prophylactic administration of anticonvulsants, existing data pertaining to four topics were examined: the danger posed by a single seizure, the incidence of seizures in a given disease state, the ability of anticonvulsant medication to prevent seizures, and the risks and benefits associated with pharmacological intervention.

In general , where the risk of seizure exceeds 10 to 15% or where a single seizure may have disastrous consequences , anticonvulsant prophylaxis is recommended .
