چکیده مقاله:

Background: Epilepsy is a chronic neurological disease that can have debilitating and undeniable effects on various aspects of life, including psychological, social, and physical dimensions, and affect one's quality of life. Because of the high prevalence of this disease among children, concerns about their quality of life are greater and need more detailed investigation.Method: To review previous studies using keywords such as childhood epilepsy, quality of life, and pediatric in three Google Scholar databases, PubMed, Scopus, we searched from ۲۰۱۰ to ۲۰۲۲. According to the inclusion and exclusion criteria, eight studies were chosen.Results: Three studies showed that as age increases, the quality of life decreases significantly. This may be due to children's self-awareness about the disease and its negative aspects. Educational problems, decreased self-esteem, decreased independence, and reduced social participation are common consequences among these children. The psychological problems caused by this disease can lead to decreased physical activity, poor muscle strength, and physical decline. The age of the child, the time of the first seizure, performance, and family support significantly affect the quality of life of these children.Conclusion: According to the findings, epilepsy affects a wide range of children's lives, and due to the sensitivity of this age group, the management of this disease in an appropriate way plays an important role in improving the quality of life and should be considered.
