Seizure Disorder

Seizure Disorders of childhood may be part of another medical condition. Children having brain damage with Global Developmental Disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders may have Seizures as a co-morbid condition.Some seizure disorders are hereditary, but others are caused by birth defects or environmental hazards, such as lead poisoning. Seizure disorders are more likely to develop in patients who have other neurological disorders, psychiatric conditions, or immune-system problems. In some cases, uncontrolled seizures can cause brain damage, lowered intelligence, and permanent mental and physical impairment. Diagnosis is by observation, neurological examination, electroencephalogram (EEG), and in some cases more advanced brain imaging techniques. Conventional treatment is by AED or Anti epileptic Drug.
