Abstract

Background: Childhood absence epilepsy (CAE) is a well-known syndrome with onset in middle childhood and is characterized by multiple typical absences per day. Pharmacological treatment is specific and usually successful with a single medication. The goal of the study was to assess on risk factors associated with failure to respond to the initial antiepileptic drug (AED).
