Neuromuscular disorders are common causes of weakness and hypotonia in the infantile period and in childhood. Most neuromuscular disorders are present at birth. There are hundreds of neuromuscular disorders, many with subtypes related to specific genetic causes including Muscular Dystrophy, Spinal Muscular Atrophy, Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease (CMT), Friedreich’s Ataxia (FA). Accurate diagnosis of specific neuromuscular disorders depends first on identification of which aspect of the peripheral neuromuscular system is affected--the motor neuron in the spinal cord, the nerve root or peripheral nerve, the neuromuscular junction, or the muscle--and then on the determination of the etiology and specific clinical entity. Some neuromuscular disorders can be diagnosed with a blood test alone. Others require a muscle or nerve biopsy.

Seizer is a condition in which the normal electrical brain function is temporarily affected when part(s) of the brain receives a burst of abnormal electrical signals. There are many types of seizures and some have mild symptoms. Seizures can be categorized two main groups. Focal seizures, also called partial seizures, happen in just one part of the brain. Generalized seizures are a result of abnormal activity on both sides of the brain. Epilepsy is considered as a chronic condition that is defined by seizures. Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS) is a rare and severe form of epilepsy. Infantile spasm (IS) is an age-specific epileptic disorder of infancy and early childhood. Children with IS typically exhibit epileptic spasms along with the electroencephalographic pattern known as Hypsarrhythmia. Brivaracetam Carbamazepine, Eslicarbazepine, Ethosuximide, Felbamate, Phenobarbitol, Phenytoin, Topiramate are some of the Antiseizure drugs.
