Incidence of seizure in first year of life is very high. There is a sharp difference between neonatal and post neonatal seizures in infants with respect to etiology, seismology, E.E.G and imaging outcomes and final prognosis. This was an observational prospective study conducted at G.B Panth Childrens’ hospital Srinagar. A detailed history was also sought regarding other variables relevant to the study including a thorough developmental history. A detailed examination was done under controlled conditions after patient stabilization including anthropometry, general physical and systemic examination and developmental examination. Our study found a different aetiological pattern as compared to few other studies done in this age group. Our study found a different aetiological pattern of post neonatal infant seizures that differed significantly from previous studies. Also we recommend a larger cohort of patients to study aetiology in this age group. Further this study found brain imaging as an important tool in predicting seizure recurrence and developmental delay in post neonatal infants presenting with first seizure.
