Neonatal seizures are the epileptic fits occurring from birth to the end of the neonatal period. It is also known as neonatal convulsions. These differ from those of older children and adults. Symptoms include tonic, horizontal deviation of the eyes with or without jerking, eyelid blinking or fluttering, sucking, smacking or other oral–buccal–lingual movements, swimming or pedalling movements.
Neonatal seizures or neonatal convulsions are epileptic fits occurring from birth to the end of the neonatal period. The neonatal period is the most vulnerable of all periods of life for developing seizures, particularly in the first 1–2 days to the first week from birth. They may be short-lived events lasting for a few days only. However, they often signify serious malfunction of or damage to the immature brain and constitute a neurological emergency demanding urgent diagnosis and management. The prevalence of neonatal seizures is 1.5% and overall incidence is 3 per 1000 live births. The incidence in pre-term infants is very high (57–132 per 1000 live births). Most (80%) neonatal seizures occur in the first 1–2 days to the first week of life.

Neonatal toxic shock is a cutaneous condition which is characterized by a generalized diffuse macular erythema or morbilliform eruption with confluence. neonatal toxic shock is caused by TSS toxin-1 produced predominantly by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). It is manifested by sudden onset of fever, chills, hypotension, and rash.

Neonatal bowel obstruction is one of the most common surgical emergencies in new bornes. Recent estimates place the incidence at 1 in 2000 live births. The 4 cardinal signs of intestinal obstruction in newbornes are , maternal poly hydramnios, bilious emesis, failure to pass meconium in the first day of life, and abdominal distension. Successful management depends on timely diagnosis and appropriate intervention. an accurate history and physical examination, corroborated by simple radiologic studies, usually leads the physician to the correct diagnosis. Fortunately, the outlook for babies undergoing surgery for intestinal obstruction is excellent. A newborn who vomits bile (spinach-colored emesis) may have ileus from sepsis or necrotizing entero collitis, but proximal intestinal obstruction is a possible etiology. The physician must be vigilant and not overlook the following potential catastrophes

Neonatal Cholestatic jaundice is a common presenting feature of neonatal hepato bilary and metabolic dysfunction. Any infant who remains jaundiced beyond age 2 to 3 weeks should have the serum bilirubin level fractionated into a conjugated (direct) and unconjugated (indirect) portion. Conjugated hyper bilirubinemia is never physiologic or normal.

In 2012, preterm birth affected more than 450,000 babies that 1 of every 9 infants born in the United States. Preterm birth is the birth of an infant before 37 weeks of pregnancy. Preterm-related causes of death together accounted for 35% of all infant deaths in 2010, more than any other single cause. Preterm birth is also a leading cause of long-term neurological disabilities in children. Preterm birth costs the U.S. health care system more than $26 billion in 2005.

Neonatal conjunctivitis is defined as conjunctival inflammation occurring within the first 30 days of life. Numerous etiologies have been implicated including chemical conjunctivitis as well as viral and bacterial infections. Complications range from mild hyperaemia and scant discharge to permanent scarring and blindness. Neonatal conjunctivitis is characterized by the swelling (inflammation) or infection of the tissue lining the eyelids in a newborn. It is also known as ophthalmia neonatorum. This usually occurs by the contamination of babys eyes with Neisseria gonorrhoeae or Chlamydia trachomatis during passage through the birth canal.

The umbilical cord connects a baby in the womb to its mother. It runs from an opening in your baby stomach to the placenta in the womb. The average cord is about 50cm (20 inches) long.
Blood circulates through vessels in the cord, which consists of: one vein that carries blood rich in oxygen and nutrients from you to your baby two arteries that return deoxygenated blood and waste products, such as carbon dioxide, from your baby back to the placenta.

Neonatal sepsis is a bacterial blood stream infection. Transplacental infection is a vital reason for causing meningitis, pneumonia, pyelonephritis, or gastroenteritis. Neonatal sepsis can be subdivided into ahead of schedule onset neonatal sepsis and late-onset neonatal sepsis.
The clinical symptoms manifested by neonates with EONS and LONS are non-specific and usually include temperature instability, respiratory problems, apnea, feeding intolerance, etc. Generally, the diagnosis of neonatal sepsis diagnosis is carried out by blood, CSF and urine cultures. Nowadays, other diagnostic tools such as complete blood Cell Count, C-reactive protein, procalcitonin, mannose binding lectin, cytokine profile, etc. are being studied.

Breastfeeding for the initial six month of life gives important medical advantages to both mother and neonate including brought down danger for contaminations, gastrointestinal issue, asthma, and diabetes in kids and lessened danger of maternal weight increase, post pregnancy anxiety, diseases, and diabetes in mothers. Breast milk has an optimal balance of fat, sugar, water, and protein that is needed for a baby's growth and development. Breastfeeding triggers biochemical reactions which allows for the enzymes, hormones, growth factors and immunologic substances to effectively defend against infectious diseases for the infant.

Hemolytic disease of the newborn (HDN) is a blood disorder in a fetus or newborn infant. In some infants, it can be life-threatening. The most common form of HDN is ABO incompatibility, which is usually not very severe. Other, less common types may cause more severe problems. The least common form is Rh incompatibility, which can almost always be prevented. When this form does occur, it can cause very severe anemia in the baby.

Jaundice is the most common condition that requires medical attention in newborns. The yellow coloration of the skin and sclera in newborns with jaundice is the result of accumulation of unconjugated bilirubin.
Neonatal physiologic jaundice results from simultaneous occurrence of the following two phenomena
1. Bilirubin production is elevated
2. Hepatic excretory capacity is low

A congenital heart defect is a problem with the structure of the heart. It is present at birth. Congenital heart defects are the most common type of birth defect. The defects can involve the walls of the heart, the valves of the heart, and the arteries and veins near the heart. They can disrupt the normal flow of blood through the heart. The blood flow can slow down, go in the wrong direction or to the wrong place, or be blocked completely.

Neonatal respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) is a problem often seen in premature babies. The condition makes it hard for the baby to breathe. Neonatal RDS occurs in infants whose lungs have not yet fully developed. The disease is mainly caused by a lack of a slippery substance in the lungs called surfactant. This substance helps the lungs fill with air and keeps the air sacs from deflating. Surfactant is present when the lungs are fully developed.Neonatal RDS can also be due to genetic problems with lung development.
