    The prognosis of 28 infants presenting consecutively to a general paediatric unit with convulsions between 1 and 6 months of age was far better than had been reported previously. Between 1 and 4 years after presentation the condition of 19 patients was normal, 3 were mildly handicapped, 4 severely handicapped, and 2 had died. Normal physical examination and electroencephalogram at time of presentation, and easy control of convulsions were associated with a satisfactory outcome.
