Dr Famiya Riya O


Abstract: This study presents a retrospective analysis of paediatric patients admitted with seizures to a tertiary care hospital in Kollam during January 2022. The research primarily focuses on comparing the incidence, age and sex distribution, and recurrence rates of seizures in children with COVID-19 against those with non-COVID febrile illnesses. The study involved reviewing medical records of children aged less than 12 years, diagnosed with COVID-19 or tested negative for the virus. The results indicated a significantly higher incidence of seizures and recurrent seizures in children with COVID-19 compared to those with non-COVID febrile illnesses. Notably, children older than five years showed a higher frequency of fever-associated seizures in the COVID-19 category. This study underscores the need for larger, more comprehensive studies to understand the broader implications of these findings in the paediatric population during the pandemic.
