The average annual incidence of spontaneous seizures was 114 per 100,000, 5 times more frequent than an age-adjusted nonpsychiatric cohort. Host susceptibility rather than treatment features influenced seizure development. A longer latency to first seizure was associated with greater likelihood of seizure recurrence, a relationship also observed in posttraumatic epilepsy
