1,697 Possible Causes for Neonatal Seizures

  • Skin Infection

    The infant recovered, with no seizures by the 16th day from admission, and was off the ventilator by the 18th day.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 1-week-old infant was brought to a regional hospital with a history of recurrent seizures following lower abdominal septic skin infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This was shorter than the usual 3 - 4 weeks for neonates with tetanus at the hospital.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Fetal Distress in Labor

    The infant may suffer: Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy Meconium aspiration syndrome Cerebral palsy Neonatal seizures 8 Intrapartum Testing Tests utilized to assess fetal well[slideplayer.com]

  • Tetanus Neonatorum

    Tetanus was frequently confused with neonatal seizures at time of presentation. All infants were delivered at home.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Five infants with neonatal tetanus were managed with neuromuscular blockade and positive pressure ventilation. All survived.[pediatrics.aappublications.org] seizures of the patient.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Neonatal Hypocalcemia

    Neonatal seizures were significantly associated with neonatal hypocalcemia in the entire sample (P 0.0001), regardless of intellectual level.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Seven had both neonatal hypocalcemia and neonatal seizures; neonatal hypocalcemia was identified following neonatal seizures in five subjects.[nature.com] We report here a 14-day-old neonate presenting with a gradually increasing frequency of tonic seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Streptococcal Infection

    seizures and unexplained spastic cerebral palsy in infants of normal birth weight. 5 Up to 2 percent of maternal carriers deliver infants with invasive group B streptococcal[aafp.org] Signs and symptoms of GBS neonatal infection may include fever , breathing problems, seizures , lethargy, and poor feeding.[medicinenet.com] […] pelvic thrombophlebitis, endocarditis and sepsis. 3 , 4 Clinically diagnosed maternal intrapartum infection is strongly associated with five-minute Apgar scores below 6, neonatal[aafp.org]

  • Pyridoxine Dependency Syndrome

    Folinic acid–responsive seizures are another treatable cause of neonatal seizures.[demosmedical.com] […] sleep myoclonus or benign neonatal seizures.[adc.bmj.com] The classic clinical presentation is neonatal seizures responsive only to pyridoxine therapy.[pediatrics.aappublications.org]

  • Hypomagnesemia

    Because their serum calcium levels were low at the early stage, the diagnosis of late-onset neonatal hypocalcemia was mistakenly made.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , usually tonic-clonic, can occur in neonates and adults in association with severe hypomagnesemia. 10 Evaluation Physical examination may reveal an abnormal mental status[epilepsy.com] Their seizures did not respond to parenteral calcium initially, but were completely terminated after the administration of magnesium.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Neonatal Intracranial Hemorrhage

    […] period is not obvious, And in the months after birth, chronic subdural effusion, seizures, developmental delay and anemia.[healthfrom.com] Neurologic manifestations like neonatal seizure, decreased level of consciousness, increased intracranial pressure are the most common presentations of ICH in term newborns[intechopen.com] In the present study, the most frequent form of ICH in neonates was SDH.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Aminoaciduria

    CSF amino acid analysis is critical to the differential diagnosis of neonatal onset seizures including the detection of nonketotic hyperglycinemia and serine synthesis disorders[ohsu.edu] This test is appropriate for diagnostic confirmation following a positive newborn screen result or in individuals who present symptomatically with developmental delay, seizures[ohsu.edu]

  • Neonatal Hypoglycemia

    Nine children with neonatal seizures had moderate or severe white matter injury and 7 had cortical involvement.[pediatricneurologybriefs.com] Twenty-seven patients with seizure and history of neonatal hypoglycemia were compared with 28 children suffering from idiopathic occipital epilepsy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Fourty five patients (range 6 mo-15 y) with a history of symptomatic neonatal hypoglycaemia were included the study.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
