FONTENELLE, Lúcia  and  KREIMER, Vanessa. Refractory epilepsy in chidhood. Arq. Neuro-Psiquiatr. [online]. 1995, vol.53, n.1, pp. 23-25. ISSN 0004-282X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0004-282X1995000100004.

The study of epileptic syndromes in childrens displaying a poor prognosis reveals common characteristics which allow the delineation of a clinical profile. In this study, hospital records of a treatment of convulsions in children were analysed during a two year period. We observed that the majority of cases presented this clinical profile.
