An acute CNS insult is more likely if the first seizure occurs during an illness, for which a specific treatment may be needed. Seizures may occur with epilepsy or may result from an acute primary CNS insult, such as stroke, intracranial hemorrhage, or traumatic brain injury, or from a systemic disorder with secondary effects on the CNS, such as hypoglycemia, hypoxemia, or hypotension. A focal neurologic deficit is more suggestive of a primary intracranial insult, whereas global (diffuse) CNS dysfunction suggests a secondary CNS insult, such as hypoglycemia.
