About Pediatric Epilepsy

When a child has two or more seizures, he or she is considered to have epilepsy. There are many possible causes of pediatric epilepsy, including tumors, strokes, and brain damage from illness or injury. In many cases, there may be no detectable cause for epilepsy.

What are Pediatric Seizures?

The brain is the center that controls and regulates all voluntary and involuntary responses in the body. It consists of nerve cells that normally communicate with each other through electrical activity.

Pediatric seizures occur when part(s) of the brain receives a burst of abnormal electrical signals that temporarily interrupts normal electrical brain function.
