    Longitudinal cohort studies of prognosis in epilepsy have been carried out since the late 1970s and these have transformed our understanding of prognosis in epilepsy. This paper reviews the contribution of such studies and focuses particularly on the National General Practice Study of Epilepsy,...

    Berg et al. report that complete remission of paediatric epilepsy occurs in about 60% of patients over the course of 20 years. This outcome can be predicted with fair accuracy based on initial clinical factors, and good accuracy based on early seizure outcomes over the first 2–5 years.The...
