It is called Epilepsy. There could be number of reasons for its occurance. This disease is not curable but second attack can be prevented. Take your nephew to a good neurosurgeon. He/She will diagnose the condition and give medication. The medication has to be given at the prescribed time and in the correct dose that is mentioned by the doctor. You should be very careful not to miss a single dose and give higher or less qualtity of the medicine. This is of utmost importance. If you follow this than your child will have no symotoms or persisting problems. In case you do not follow this, than the second attack will be even severe. I do not intend to scare you but you need to know these things so that you are careful as the child in only 16 months old.
