Epilepsies and epileptic syndromes are among the most frequent chronic neurologic disorders in neonates, infants, and children. Seventy percent of children with epilepsy will enter remission but the rest will suffer from frequent seizures and will become refractory to various treating modalities. Such refractory seizures have a huge negative impact on the quality of life of children and their families. Prognosis of epilepsies is defined by recurrence risk of the seizures or convulsions. Among the risk factors for recurrence, the most important are the age of seizure presentation, the neurodevelopment of the child, the etiology of seizures, the seizure frequency before anticonvulsant withdrawal, response to antiepileptic medications, the type of epileptic syndrome, and electroencephalography of the patient. Knowing about the risk factors of recurrence could help us to optimally manage our treatment protocols and finally could reduce the negative impact of epilepsy on the patient and their families. In this paper, we will review the most important risk factors for recurrence of epilepsies in children.
