Epilepsia 28(4) 324-330, 1987

All Children aged 0-19 years who had active epilepsy in a defined Swedish population were traced and given a clinical and psychometric investigation. Twelve years later a follow up study was carried out. Eleven of 194 Children had died. A long-standing remission of seizures occurred in 124 of the 194 Children. Sign of neurodeficit, frequent seizures and many types of seizures were negative prognostic factors.
