The history of seizures is amalgamated with the history of human existence, the first reports on epilepsy can be traced back to the Assyrian texts almost 2000B.C[1] A seizure is an extreme rush of electrical activity in the brain that can cause a variety of symptoms, depending on which parts of the brain are involved. Juvenile Seizuresare a common disorder that can be triggered or motiveless which are called provoked and unprovoked seizures respectively. Seizures, that are triggered by fever in young children or by severe hypoglycemia, are not considered to be forms of epilepsy. Unprovoked seizures have no clear cause but can be related to genetics or brain injury. When a child has two or more unprovoked seizures repeatedly, then it can be established as Epilepsy. Seizures not only affect the health of a child but also affect the entire family and are associated with increased parental stress with a decrease in quality of life (2) Epilepsy that begins within the first year of life often signifies increased morbidity. Although some epilepsyaffecting children less than oneyear of age can have favorable prognoses, others result in medically obstinate seizures, developmental delay/intellectual debility, and other neurologic impediments (3)(4). A classical description of Seizure disorders is available in various Siddha literature.The book yugi chinthamani-800, written by the great sage YUGIMUNI elaborately deals with both physical and mental illness.He described and classified various types of neurosis and functional psychosis.
