Hi Anon

Thank you for your post and I'm sure this incident was very frightening. I'm glad your child is ok now.

Unfortunately we cannot answer your questions in detail because the cause of his seizure is unknown and he may require further testing.

Here are some causes for seizures in children and adults:

In children and adults:

  • Congenital conditions—present at birth
  • Genetic
  • Head Trauma—common cause (eg, concussion , skull fracture, oxygen deprivation due to near-drowning )
  • Infections (eg, encephalitis , cerebritis, brain abscess)

You can read all about seizures here, just bear in mind that this page explains certain seizures in general and is not a diagnosis: http://www.empowher.com/media/reference/seizure-disorder

What is your current plan with your child's doctors? What have you been told about the possibilities of re-occurrence or treatment options?

We hope to hear back from you!
