Epilepsy & Seizures
Benign familial neonatal seizures is a syndrome characterized by focal clonic seizures, occasionally with a generalized tonic-clonic component, that occurs in full-term neonates. The seizures usually begin within 2 to 8 days of birth and remit by 16 months. The syndrome is caused by mutations in the gene encoding voltage-gated K+ channels and is usually familial and self-limited.
