JUAREZ BELAUNDE, Alan Luis et al. Characteristics of seizures seen in children with terminal chronic renal failure. . Rev Med Hered [online]. 2008, vol.19, n.1, pp. 05-09. ISSN 1729-214X.

Seizures are a frequent complication seen in children with Terminal Chronic Renal Failure. Objective: To describe the characteristics of seizures seen in the children with Terminal Chronic Renal Failure. Material and Methods: Retrospective study, type series of cases. There were included 24, 14-year-old minor patients of both sexes by IRC-T who presented at least an episode of epileptic attack, attended in the Hospital Nacional Cayetano Heredia between January, 1998 and March, 2006. Results: We found 24/188 (12,7%) prevalence of seizures in the population, 18/24 (75%) of children were on chronic dialysis while they present the first episode of seizures, the most frequent type of seizures were partial crisis (41.6%); we found that the more frequent etiology of Terminal Chronic Renal Failure was glomerulopathies and the most frequent finding on the CT scan was the parenchymal hemorrhage. Conclusions: The frequency of seizures in children with Terminal Chronic Renal Failure were less frequent than the frequency found in the revised literature. (Rev Med Hered 2008;19:1-4).
