Syncope and Seizures in Children


This article discusses syncope, epileptic and febrile seizures. A careful history will determine whether an attack is provoked or unprovoked, facilitating further evaluation to establish diagnosis and management. It is important always to exclude acute symptomatic causes of seizures and syncope. The majority of children who experience syncope, febrile seizure or a single epileptic seizure will not have epilepsy.
