Paper Abstract

Exploration of database of infants with symptomatic epilepsy is presented. The R environment is used for 67 attributes analysis in three groups of infants with epilepsy, different diagnostic results, and different therapeutic procedures . The estimation of the birth weight, time of labor, and Apgar score allows to eliminate these perinatal factors as the reasons for epilepsy. It is also presented, by using R environment, that postinflamatory viral brain damage and microcephaly is strongly connected with severe epilepsy, and, therefore, polytherapy with antiepileptic drugs is necessary.
