The First Seizure Trial (FIRST), a multi-centre study from Italy, reported that the recurrence risks after an untreated first unprovoked seizure were 18%, 28%, 41% and 51% at 3, 6, 12 and 24 months after the initial event. The Europe-based Multicenter Epilepsy and Single Seizure study (MESS) showed that the risks of recurrence were 26%, 39%, 51% and 52% at 6 months, 2, 5 and 8 years after randomisation. On the whole, observational studies provide a 2-year recurrence risk estimate in the region of 40%, concurring to a large extent with data from the randomised trials. Both randomised trials and almost all long-term observational studies of first seizures demonstrate that the recurrence is the highest during the period immediately after the first seizure. Several studies with long follow-up periods indicate that 80-90% of patients who recur do so within the first 2 years.
