Academic difficulties are common in epileptic children. A learning disability (LD) is a reduction in the learning capacity of children or the intellectual ability of adults, which is different from mental retardation or dementia. The participants were 56 patients, of whom 35 were males (62.5%), and 21 were females (37.5%). The participants attended the Neurology Outpatient Clinic, the Sohag University Hospital, between December 2016 and May 2017. Children with chronological age between 7 and 16 years with idiopathic focal and normal mental and motor developmental history were enrolled in this cross-sectional study. The Revised Quick Neurological Screening Test was used to assess different types of LD. LDs were present in 67.9% of our participants with a statistically significant association between LDs in one arm and younger age, earlier age of onset of epilepsy, frequent seizures, and seizure semiology, particularly of temporal lobe origin, in the other arm. In addition, left epileptic focus on EEG, prolonged treatment duration with antiepileptic drugs (AED), and polytherapy were significantly correlated with LDs. Many factors are significantly correlated with LDs in children with idiopathic focal epilepsy, like age of the patient, age of epilepsy onset, seizure semiology, prolonged AED treatment, and polytherapy.
