Özet

Background: Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) can mimic epileptic seizure, and may be misdiagnosed as epilepsy. On the other hand, GERD can be more commonly seen in children with neurological disorders such as cerebral palsy (CP); this coincidence may complicate the management of patients by mimicking refractory seizures.
