In brief: Seizures

Pyridoxine or vitamin b6 is used to treat these seizures.
This is an unusual form of seizure in an infant that is difficult to control. The hallmark is that the seizures do not respond to anti-seizure medications, but both clinically and by monitoring electrical activity in the brain, they respond to pyridoxine.
