Abstract

The cardinal question for a person developing seizures is 'What is the likelihood that they will go away? ''Prognosis' refers to the possible outcomes of a disease and the frequencyat which they can be expected to occur. Prognostic factors may include demographic features, disease-specific indicators (e.g. seizure frequency, aetiology of epilepsy) or comorbidity. Such factors do not necessarily cause the outcome, but they are associated strongly with the outcome measured. They are distinct from risk factors-which are associated with the initial development of the disorder. Ideas about the outcome for epilepsy have been altered radically in the past century by study of its epidemiology. The prognosis for epilepsy comprises a number of measurable end-points: the prediction of recurrence after a single unprovoked seizure, the chance of remission after the diagnosis of epilepsy and the risk of premature death.
