Abstract

Neonatal Seizures are generally considered as a whole, but they aren't. The majority are occasional symptomatic seizures, occurring as reactive events to acute insults, systemic diseases or disturbances, subsiding soon after the acute event. In some cases however they are symptoms of a true epilepsy: both a complex of signs and symptoms that define a unique specific syndromic condition and nonsyndromic epilepsy with structuralmetabolic causes. Such epilepsies may be both idiopathic and symptomatic, with focal and or generalized seizures, secondary to a more or less focal or generalized brain involvment. Moreover, globally considered, prognosis is poor: close to 16% die early; 33% have serious morbidities; about half escape sequelae. Aim of this study was to asses neonatal mortality and to classify newborns with epileptic seizures, by the Report of the ILAE Commission on Classification and Terminology 2005-2009. On considering the electroclinical data at the onset of seizures and at the end of the neonatal period, we want to look for the diagnosis rate of symptomatic seizures and neonatal epilepsies.
