Epilepsy is third most common chronic neurological disease. Mortality is 2-3% more common in epilepsy patients than in general population. World wide survey have shown that epilepsy responds to treatment in about 70 % of epileptic patients and three fourth of the affected people do not get the treatment they need. So objective of our study was to know the outcome and pattern of epilepsy at Department of Neurology CMC teaching hospital Larkana ,so that in next step we could know which factors could reduce the morbitity and mortality due to epilepsy hence could prevent complications due to epilepsy. Total 404 patients were enrolled out of them 55 % were controlled and compared to world wide survey that in which 70 % of epileptic patients are controlled who get treatment so in comparison with world wide survey and this study there is gape of 15 % .
