Example text

In older children, investigation depends on the clinical circumstances, but may include lumbar puncture or brain scanning. The outcome of febrile seizures has been the subject of intensive study, which has concentrated on three aspects: the risk of recurrent febrile convulsions, the risk of neurological or developmental deficit, and the risk of subsequent non-febrile epilepsy. Although parents, on witnessing the first febrile convulsion, almost invariably feel that the child is about to die, the mortality risk from febrile convulsions is negligible.

There are, however, children in whom the condition appears to evolve into other seizure syndromes and who develop intractable seizures and neuropsychological deficit. The overlap, even of BECTS, which seems a relatively specific symptom complex, and other syndromes, is an illustration of the boundary problems that exist in all epilepsy syndromes. Transitional cases have been labelled atypical benign partial epilepsy (ABPE) or pseudoLennox–Gastaut syndrome, and some authorities consider BECTS, ESES and the Landau–Kleffner syndrome to be part of a spectrum.

Neonatal seizures The clinical and EEG features, the cause and the pathophysiology of seizures in the neonatal period differ from those in later life. Clinical signs are necessarily confined to motor features and are usually focal or multifocal, reflecting the immature synaptic connections in the neonatal brain. The EEG changes are variable and nonspecific. Seizures can take the form of tonic attacks, clonic seizures, unilateral focal seizures, electrographic seizures without overt clinical changes and so-called subtle seizures.
