Risk factors for the recurrence of convulsions with mild gastroenteritis in children

Convulsions with mild gastroenteritis (CwG) was first proposed by the Japanese scholar Morooka in 1982 [1], and was then gradually recognized and received attention from Asia and Europe. CwG affects infants and young children usually between 6 months and 3 years of age, and typically occurs in previously healthy children. CwG is a unique condition where patients experience seizures during gastroenteritis [1]. It is characterized by afebrile, brief seizures associated with mild gastroenteritis without dehydration, electrolytic derangement, or hypoglycemia, and without signs of meningitis, encephalitis, or encephalopathy.
