Seizures are a frequent symptom seen in intensive care nurseries and may be the only sign of a central nervous system disorder in the neonate. The clinical manifestations of neonatal seizures are widely variable and may be indicative of alternate pathophysiology. The advent of portable video electroencephalographic monitoring has improved the ability to correlate clinical behaviors with electrocortical activity and may facilitate diagnosis. The ability to accurately recognize seizures and determine their cause is crucial to providing treatment.
