From fetal life to adulthood, paediatric neurology (PN) focuses on the diagnosis, comprehensive therapy, and research of conditions of the central and peripheral nervous systems. A child neurologist, often known as a pediatric neurologist, is a specialist who specializes in diagnosing children with nervous system disorders. The brain, spine, nerves, or muscles can all be the source of nervous system problems. Seizures, migraines, and developmental delays are all possible outcomes. Children's neurologists work with them from infancy through young adulthood.
Epilepsy is a chronic condition characterized by recurring, spontaneous seizures. If a person has two unprovoked seizures (or one unprovoked seizure with the possibility of more) that are not caused by a recognized and reversible medical disease such as alcohol withdrawal or extremely low blood sugar, they are diagnosed with epilepsy. Epilepsy affects people of all ages and is the fourth most common neurological illness. The terms "epilepsy" and "seizure disorders" are interchangeable. Epilepsy is characterized by unpredictably occurring seizures and can result in a variety of other health issues.
