Prasad et al. (doi: 10.1542/peds. 2013-2554) opted to look into the prevalence of various injuries in
almost 12,000 patients with epilepsy between the ages of 1 to 24 years and compared these patients to a comparison group of more than 46,000 patients without seizures using a large longitudinal data base of primary care records.
