Learn About Early Infantile Epileptic Encephalopathy

What is the definition of Early Infantile Epileptic Encephalopathy?
Early Infantile Epileptic Encephalopathy (EIEE) is a neurological disorder characterized by seizures. The disorder affects newborns, usually within the first three months of life in the form of epileptic seizures. Infants may have primarily tonic seizures (which cause stiffening of muscles of the body, generally those in the back, legs, and arms), but may also experience partial seizures, and rarely, myoclonic seizures (which cause jerks or twitches of the upper body, arms, or legs). Most infants with the disorder show underdevelopment of part or all of the cerebral hemispheres or structural anomalies. Some cases are caused by metabolic disorders or by genetic changes in several different genes. The cause for many cases can't be determined.
