Four syndromes of neonatal seizures are accepted into the International Classification of epilepsies, epileptic syndromes and related disorders (ILAE, 1989). Moreover most of newborns with neonatal seizures (NS) are calssified as epilepsies and syndromes undetermined wheter focal or generalized and seizures are generally symptomatic of an acute neonatal condition: in such a situation prognosis is not well understood. On examinig data from 95 consecutive newborns with EEG-confirmed NS observed between 1989 and 1999, we discuss about ILAE Classification of NS considering postnatal epilepsy and outcome for newborns with symptomatic NS.
