This case series study was conducted in our "Child health clinics." A total of 125 children below 6 years with Breath holding spells were enrolled between May 2012 and April 2017, out of which 10 children were excluded from the study because these children had other associated problems (like one child had Atrial septal defect, two children had Ventricular septal defect, three children had history of febrile convulsions and four children were lost for follow-up in due course).
