A seizure is a sudden abnormal burst of electrical activity in one or more parts of the brain from a variety of causes, that interrupt the normal brain signals and result in a wide variety of symptoms depending on from where the electrical signals originate. The main types of seizures are focal (partial seizures) or generalized. Both are quite common in infants and children. When a child has recurrent seizures for which no cause can be found it’s diagnosed as epilepsy. What causes seizures in children? The most common type of seizure is associated with fever (often with a high temperature and called a febrile seizure). For many children with recurrent seizures, the cause is unknown, though in some there is a family history of seizures. Other causes include: brain infections (like meningitis) cerebral palsy metabolic disorders head trauma bleeding inside the brain drug use brain tumors poisons/toxins And a wide variety of other uncommon conditions.
