Abstract: Seizures may occur as a complication of cerebrovascular disease (CVD) and its prevalence, clinical presentation, risk factors and evolution have been reported by few authors. We evaluated 39 children with CVD and analyzed the association with seizures. Seizures occurred in 24 (61.5%) patients and were classified as partial (29.2%), generalized (54.2%) and secondarily generalized (16.6%). Infants had a significantly higher prevalence of seizures (p = 0.0362) than children at other ages. Cortical localization was associated with a significantly higher prevalence of seizures (p = 0.0101). There were no differences between ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes. Fourteen patients had no seizures after the acute phase of the CVD, the 2 previously epileptic patients had their seizures controlled with antiepileptic drugs, 3 developed epilepsy, 2 died during the acute phase and in 3 patients there was not enough time yet to make a clear diagnosis of epilepsy.
