Abstract The nature, course and prognosis of seizures were investigated in patients with epilepsy and cerebral palsy (CP). 174 children with epilepsy were investigated: 57 with CP and 117 who were otherwise neurologically normal. Epilepsy in patients with CP was characterized by early age at onset, generalized focal and multifocal seizures and a poorer prognosis. The presence of cerebral palsy requires differential consideration of the severity of epilepsies. This may be of appreciable importance for the prognostic evaluation of anticonvulsant therapy or the course of epilepsy.
