Our model shows that in people with newly diagnosed epilepsy, higher SMRs translate into a decrease in life expectancy, which is more pronounced in those with symptomatic epilepsy. Clearly, more work is needed in this area to produce more accurate estimates of life expectancy for the particular epilepsy types or syndromes, aetiology, presence of co-morbid conditions, and refractoriness to treatment.
Further methodological work is required to establish the uncertainty in our estimates of reduction in life expectancy. The output from program BMDP 2L does not tabulate directly the values of the parameters in model 2 above, instead it uses a different parametrization of the Weibull model Collett, We wish to thank Dr Gail Bell for her comments on the manuscript.

Abstract Epilepsy carries a risk of premature mortality, but little is known about life expectancy in people with the condition. Box 1.

The latter groupcomprised patients previously in the acute symptomatic, remotesymptomatic and congenital deficit groups, with the exception of patients with epilepsy due to brain tumours who were excluded from the analysis.

Although the risk of dying depends upon the interval from diagnosis, it also varies with other factors covariates such as age and gender, and these must be taken into account when fitting the Weibull model.
