Dr. Ankur Chandra [3] | Dr. Ashok Uppal | Dr Chapala Shashank

Abstract: Institution: Aims & Objectives: To study imaging findings of various pathologic conditions in epileptic children, neonates. Correlating imaging findings with clinical and EEG findings. To decide better diagnostic modalities in different age groups. Materials & Methods: 40 patients with epilepsy (>2 episodes were included) Neurosonogram in 6 patients (<1 year) 15.1%, head CT 15 (37.5%), MRI in all cases. Contrast was given as per requirement. EEG, except 5 cases of trauma. Epilepsy provoked by fever, electrolyte imbalance, dehydration excluded. Result: The most common cause of epilepsy in our study was tuberculosis in this region, being at 22.5% > neurocysticercosis at 15%> Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy at 10%. Conclusion: The imaging modality of choice is MRI. CT plays role in identifying calcification and trauma. USG plays major role in neonates because of its portability. MRI has increased our understanding of the underlying disease process as well as revolutionised evaluation and management of epilepsy.
