Abstract: Epilepsy is a common neurological disease in children, caused by highly synchronized abnormal discharges of brain neurons and characterized by a persistent tendency to cause epilepsy.Pediatric epilepsy and sleep disorders can affect each other and form a vicious circle.However, clinicians pay insufficient attention to sleep disorders in children with epilepsy and lack effective diagnosis and treatment.Therefore, this article discusses the interaction between epilepsy and sleep in children, common sleep disorders in children with epilepsy, and assessment and treatment methods, hoping to provide references for early identification and comprehensive diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders in children with epilepsy.

Key words: children, epilepsy, sleep disorders

摘要: 癫痫是一种儿童常见神经系统疾病,由脑部神经元高度同步化异常放电所致,以持久性的致痫倾向为特征。儿童癫痫和睡眠障碍相互影响,形成恶性循环。然而,目前临床医生对癫痫儿童的睡眠障碍重视不足,缺乏有效诊治。因此,本文就儿童癫痫和睡眠的相互影响、癫痫儿童常见的睡眠障碍,以及评估和治疗的方法进行论述,期望为癫痫儿童睡眠障碍的早期识别和综合诊治提供参考。
