Hello. This is Dr. Frank again, I answered your question about the EEG. Now I see this question. Her EEG is consistent with a seizure that occurred from the right hemisphere (complex partial seizure), although there is no epileptiform type activity to suggest specifically a seizure. The record was taken during sleep. Please get back to me to discuss. Dr Frank

is it happen bcos she has UTI Infection..or something else?? How dr..treat for that..
Expert:  Dr. Frank replied 1 year ago.

ques if If she had a uti then she could have had a febrile seizure. With no previous history of seizures and no family history of seizures (?) you would just treat the uti with antibiotics. The EEG is nonspecific as mentioned. It could be abnormal from her having had the seizure alone. Treat the uti. She may need an MRI of brain if she doesn't act appropriately after treatment for the uti. Ok? Ask
