Introduction: Epilepsy, a chronic neurological disease, is a public health problem because it is frequent, potentially serious, cosmopolitan without distinction of age, sex or race .
Objective: To study the contribution of electroencephalography in the diagnosis and management of epilepsy in newborns: aged between 2 and 3 months.
Material and Methods: Descriptive and analytical retrospective analysis carried out during the period 2017 - 2020, i.e. 36 months.
Results: The age group concerned were predominantly month-old infants with 50% of cases, followed by newborns under one month with 28.6% and 21.4% of cases, respectively. The male sexes were mainly concerned, in 92% of cases and a sex ratio of 13. The main indications of the electroencephalogram were represented by chronic tonic convulsive seizures (92%), followed by non-febrile neonatal convulsions and focal seizures in respectively 21.4% of cases.
