We present a case of 2-month-old infant with clustered convulsions and transient lactic acidosis associated with mild gastroenteritis caused by rotavirus. This is an unusual age for infection-related seizures. Rotavirus RNA was detected by RT-PCR in both fecal and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) samples and were genotyped as G1 and G1(P8), respectively.

Keywords: rotavirus, gastroenteritis, seizures, infant.
