Abstract

The admissions of new seizure patients to an adolescent service over a 10-year period were retrospectively reviewed with regard to the patient's etiology, work-up, and outcome. Head trauma and pseudoseizures were common, 21% and 19%, respectively, In general, the outcome in adolescents appears to depend more on the underlying diagnosis than on how the seizure presents.
