To the Editor: An 8-month-old girl, born in Perth, Western Australia, who received only breast milk feeds for her first six months of life, was referred urgently to Princess Margaret Hospital for Children (the tertiary paediatric hospital in Western Australia) for investigations of seizures. Her parents described the seizures as episodic, involving all limbs, lasting less than five minutes and occurring over the 10 days before presentation.
