Seizures in Children - Annotated Resources
The most common type of seizures in children between 6 months to 5 years old is the febrile seizure, associated with high fever. Pre-term infants may also be subject to neonatal seizures in the NICU, due to a variety of stresses such as anoxia, sepsis, hypoglycemia and brain bleeds.
The recurring seizure disorder known as epilepsy occurs in 0.5 percent of the population. Chronic seizures are more common among some groups of children, for example children with certain types of cerebral palsy, children born premature with grade 3 or 4 IVH, and children with severe brain injury (eg, CP plus MR).
