Abstract

We describe a Quality Life scale in childhood epilepsy (CAVE) composed by 8 items, behaviour, school compliance, learning, autonomy, social relation, frequency and intensity of seizures and the parents opinions. Each item may be answered as very bad (5), bad (2), medium (3), good (4), or very good (5), and we can obtain full scores before and after the beginning of epileptic treatment and we can compare them. Although other Quality Life questionnaires exist for adult epilepsy, CAVE is the first scale applied for chronic childhood epilepsy.
