Title: Quality of life in childhood epilepsy
Author: De Souza, EAP
Abstract: Epilepsy is a chronic disorder in which onset occurs primarily during childhood and adolescence. Traditionally, treatment of childhood epilepsy emphasizes neurologic aspects over psychological factors. The attention to the seizure control in the clinical setting will not address the full range of quality of life problems of childhood epilepsy. Many of the psychosocial difficulties that plague adults with epilepsy develop fi om the complications associated with this early onset. Children with epilepsy have a high prevalence of behavior problems and learning problems. Assessing quality of life in pediatric epilepsy is especially important because children are in critical periods of development during which many cognitive and social skills are being learned. This study presents a simplified inventory of quality of life, with cultural, personal, social and relationship aspects. This investigation makes possible to the professional knowledge about children and a best direction of their conducts.
