Abstract: 

The occurrence of neonatal seizures may be the first and perhaps, the only clinical sign of a central nervous system (CNS) disorder in the newborn infant. Identifying the etiology for the neonatal seizures is/critical to prognosis and treatment. The most common etiology for neonatal seizures is hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy. Seizures may indicate the presence of a potentially treatable etiology and should prompt an immediate evaluation to determine the precise cause and institute etiology-specific therapy. In this review article, we will discuss the etiology, classification, clinical features, diagnosis and the approaches to treatment of neonatal seizures.
