Aim of study to know the findings of brain MRI in neonates present with seizure. A retrospective study was done in Maternity & pediatric teaching hospital in Al-Dywanyia city in Iraq, from May 2014 to June 2018. All included neonates diagnosed to have seizure, all of them had cranial magnetic resonance imaging. The standard MRI used protocol T1, T2, diffusion weighted image, gradient echo. Included patients had general anesthesia only 5 patients didn’t have anesthesia or sedation as they were in deep sleep during MRI examination. The results that more than half of neonate (58.5%)was male & (41.5%) was female. Term neonate (60.4%) was more than preterm neonate (39.6%).High significant association between preterm & term neonate with MRI findings also there is high significant association between age of neonate at time of 1st attack of convulsion & positive brain MRI findings, abnormal l brain MRI was more common in neonate who had 1st onset on seizure in the 1st week of his life.
