Detailed data about age distributions, sex of the index cases, or familial incidences of seizures, however, were not communicated in this paper. Doose et al. [10] investigated the families of 239 patients with different types of epilepsies with absences. This study supported multifactorial inheritance, but not an autosomal dominant trait. Valid information about the risk of seizures among the offspring of absence patients is not yet available. This has, above all, methodological reasons. For the most parts, only those patients have been available who were still under treatment as adults.

From the overall population, randomly selected same-age children (10%) with no seizure history were used as controls. Clinic Sample. A total of 1689 patients with FC and under 5 years of age at the first clinic visit were examined on numerous aspects. FC was defined in this study as a seizure that occurred soon after the onset of elevated temperature (at least 38 0e), excepting brain infections and gross structural abnormality of the brain [10]. 1 Tokyo Islands Health Center, 3-5-1 Marunouchi, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo 100, Japan.
