Abstract: Epilepsy is the main neurological condition in children and adolescents. Unfortunately patients with medical refractory epilepsy are more susceptible for clinical complications and death. We report a prospectively evaluated cohort of children followed for approximately 10 years. Fifty-three of 1012 patients died. Forty-two patients died due to epilepsy or its clinical complications and the main causes of death were pneumonia (in 16 cases), sepses (in 9 patients), status epilepticus (in 8 patients). In 11 patie… Show more

“…Sudden unexpected death in epilepsy occurs more often in children with an underlying neuropathological disorder and high seizure rate [27]. We carried out a ten-year prospective cohort study of 1012 patients aged up to 18 years and identified 11 cases of SUDEP; 63% of which died while sleeping [28]. We concluded that SUDEP may be significantly associated with mortality in children and adolescents with epilepsy.…”
