An important unresolved issue in the epidemiology of epilepsy is the unexplained difference between the accumulative incidence (adding up the number of new cases per year) and lifetime prevalence (number of people with epilepsy within a population). In concept, these estimates should be about equal. This is not the case, especially in lower income regions of the world for which the accumulative annual incidence is much higher than the estimated lifetime prevalence of epilepsy.
The possible reasons for this discrepancy are the subject of this month's Controversy in Epilepsy series
