Seizures in the newborn period constitute a medical emergency. Subtle seizures are the commonest type of seizures occurring in the neonatal period. Myoclonic seizures carry the worst prognosis in terms of long-term neurodevelopmental outcome. Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy is the most common cause of neonatal seizures. Multiple etiologies often co-exist in neonates and hence it is essential to rule out common causes such as hypoglycaemia, hypocalcemia, and meningitis before initiating specific therapy. A comprehensive evidence based approach for management of neonatal seizures has been described in this protocol.
