Abstract

Objective: This study aimed to determine the clinical, electroencephalographic, and radiological factors associated with medically intractable seizures in children in the Al Ain Medical District in the United Arab Emirates. Methods: This work used a prospective case-control study of children referred to pediatric neurology and neurodevelopmental clinics at Tawam and Al Ain University Hospitals. Results: There were 55 children with intractable epilepsy; their data were compared with 50 children who responded well to antiepileptic drugs and who were seizure-free for at least 2 years. Onset
