Long-term prognosis of status epilepticus in childhood

Participants: Suresh Pujar, Rod Scott, Chris Clark, Michelle de Haan, Kling Chong, Brian Neville, Richard Chin & Christopher Gillberg.

Background: Little is known about long-term prognosis of epilepsy in childhood.

Method: To determine the prevalence of epilepsy, their types and causes 5-10 years after status epilepticus in childhood and to identify early predictors for who is at risk for developing epilepsy.

Results: Preliminary results show a significant mortality ten years after status epilepticus, where early neurological disabilities are the main risk factors. The prognosis may be positive for children who did not have any neurological problems before the first status epilepticus episode.
