What is Benign Infantile Spasm Associated with Mild Gastroenteritis?

Benign infantile spasm associated with mild gastroenteritis or Benign convulsions with mild gastroenteritis (CwG) are benign seizures that occur in infants and children aged between 6 months and 3 years and are associated with acute (viral) gastroenteritis. The pathogens found in the stool of CwG patients are mostly rotavirus or norovirus, which can result in mild dehydration. Short-lasting seizures (≤ 5 minutes) occur in clusters within 24 hours, without provoking features such as fever, abnormal laboratory findings in the blood (e.g., hypoglycemia, hyponatremia, or hypocalcemia), or abnormal results in the cerebrospinal fluid (e.g., central nervous system infection).

  • Seizure for the first time ever

  • Seizures within the last 1 week

  • Losing consciousness

  • Nausea or vomiting
