Résumé

A reference book on diagnosis, consequences and management on neonatal and infantile seizures

There is a very high incidence of seizures during the first two years of life. This may reflect multiple etiologies depending on the circumstances under which seizures occur. They may have a benign cause but for others they may lead to more devastating consequences.

This book provides new insights on how it is best to approach seizures and epilepsy in the first two years of life, to systematically create a blueprint upon which diagnostic and treatment decisions can be based.

Ongoing efforts are to understand:

  • How seizures may occur in the developing brain?
  • What are their consequences?
  • Which biomarkers are being developed?
  • What are the effective treatments to promptly stop ongoing seizures and alter the course of epileptic encephalopathies?

The data are highly reflecting the state of the art and also individualize for the particular milieu of the patient in taking into account both nature (i.e. genetics), and nurture (i.e. events that may interfere with normal development) and result in seizures and epilepsy.
