Abstract :

Background & Objective-Feile seizure is the most common seizure disorder in the pediatric age group and often recurs within the first twenty four hours. It has been observed that children have lower serum sodium levels was a risk factor for recurrence of feile seizure. The study was conducted to ascertain the role of serum sodium level in the first episode of feile seizure and as a predictor of seizure recurrence within the same feile illness. Material and methods- It was a prospective observational study conducted at Tertiary medical teaching hospital, in Department of Pediatrics. 55 Children of age 6 months to 60 months presenting with first episode of seizure with fever in our Hospital were selected for the study. Serum sodium levels were evaluated in all the children. Results- Sr. Sodium level reveals that in 72.73% of the children Sr. Sodium Level was ≤ 135 whereas in 27.27% it was >135 and mean level was 133.496.02. Conclusion- Measurement of the serum sodium in a child with feile seizures helps in predicting seizure recurrence within the same feile illness.
