Objective: To determine factors predictive of long-term seizure outcome in children with new-onset temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). Methods: A community-based cohort of 77 children with new-onset TLE, including 14 with possible TLE, were followed prospectively with formal review 7 and 14 years following seizure onset. Diagnoses were re-evaluated at each review, and changed when new clinical, EEG, or imaging data were compelling. Results: Sixty-four patients sustained the diagnosis of TLE over time… Expand
Early seizure frequency and aetiology predict long-term medical outcome in childhood-onset epilepsy.
TLDR
Factors predictive of long-term seizure and mortality outcome in a population-based cohort of 102 children found two factors present early in the course of treatment were found to be associated with adverse outcome. Expand
Clinical conditions of long-term cure in childhood-onset epilepsy: A 45-year follow-up study
TLDR
IQ, etiology, and seizure frequencies both in the first year of AED treatment and prior to medication appear to be clinical predictors of cure in childhood-onset epilepsy. Expand
Age at onset predicts good seizure outcome in sporadic non-lesional and mesial temporal sclerosis based temporal lobe epilepsy
TLDR
Older age at onset predicts better prognosis in sporadic non-lesional temporal lobe epilepsy and inversely correlated to a history of febrile seizures and to the presence of MTS. Expand
Delayed time to first remission identifies poor long-term drug response of childhood-onset epilepsy: A prospective population-based study
TLDR
It is concluded that delayed efficacy after starting drug treatment gradually diminishes chances for long-term seizure remission, whether on medication or not. Expand
Long-term prognosis in intractable epilepsy: Looking beyond a year
  • C. Bazil
  • Medicine
  • Current neurology and neuroscience reports
  • 2007
TLDR
It is clear that in patients with continued seizures after failure of several AEDs that the addition of another drug, or even simply continuing the present one, may result in improvement but not resolution of seizures in the short term. Expand
The adult seizure and social outcomes of children with partial complex seizures.
TLDR
During 25-30 years of follow-up, >50% of intellectually normal patients with childhood-onset partial complex seizures had difficult-to-control seizures and learning and psychiatric/social problems, and most with secondary generalized seizures only had remission and better academic and Psychiatric/social outcomes. Expand
Is incident drug-resistance of childhood-onset epilepsy reversible? A long-term follow-up study.
TLDR
On multivariate analysis of clinical features, in every remission category, idiopathic or cryptogenic aetiology was the only significant predictor of entering remission and is a clinical predictor of reversible drug-resistant epilepsy. Expand
How many adults with temporal epilepsy have a mild course and do not require epilepsy surgery?
TLDR
This study identifies prognostic factors that may help patients and clinicians characterize long-term outcome and identify predictors of seizure freedom. Expand
Predictors of outcome after surgery in 134 children with drug-resistant TLE
TLDR
The information on the predictive factors causing seizure recurrence/freedom in children with drug-resistant TLE is important in surgical selection, hence one should subject children for resective surgery at the earliest especially in lesions known to cause refractoriness. Expand
Evidence-based review on the natural history of the epilepsies.
TLDR
Clinical important evidence is discussed for unstable remission/relapse patterns and for causes of premature mortality in patients with epilepsy and there is emerging evidence that natural history of epilepsies is more complex than previously thought. Expand

The pathological basis of temporal lobe epilepsy in childhood
TLDR
MTS occurs frequently in association with CD in this population of children undergoing temporal lobectomy for refractory seizures and could explain the early age of seizure onset and high seizure frequency rate observed. Expand
Response to first drug trial predicts outcome in childhood temporal lobe epilepsy
TLDR
Failure of first AED trial accurately predicts refractory TLE at 2 years after onset, based on retrospective cohort data in children, and should support earlier consideration of surgical options. Expand
Short Duration of Benign Partial Epilepsy in Infancy
TLDR
Benign partial epilepsy in infancy appears to be an idiopathic localization-related epilepsy with a favorable prognosis and it is suggested that weaning of antiepilepsy drugs 6 months after seizure onset is suggested. Expand
Early development of intractable epilepsy in children
TLDR
Initial seizure frequency is highly predictive of intractable epilepsy in children, and age at onset between 5 and 9 years was associated with a lowered risk of IE, and absolute number of seizures and unprovoked or febrile status epilepticus are not. Expand

TLDR
Etiologic differences between children with new-onset TLE may confer prognostic information that will be useful for counselling families and planning treatment, and three etiologically defined subgroups of TLE are proposed. Expand
Predictors and underlying causes of medically intractable localization-related epilepsy in childhood.
TLDR
Multivariate analyses revealed that seizure type at the first visit, seizure frequency, status epilepticus before the firstVisit, and underlying causes were significant independent predictive factors. Expand

TLDR
The outcome at 5 years in this cohort of children with newly diagnosed epilepsy was favourable in 76%; 64% were off medication at that time and almost a third of the children had a fluctuating course; improvement was clearly more common than deterioration. Expand
