Pyridoxine-dependent seizures in newborns can result from the use of high-dose vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) in pregnant mothers or from autosomal recessive (genetic) pyridoxine dependency. Refractory seizures in newborns that are caused by pyridoxine dependence may be controlled quickly with intravenous administration of pyridoxine by a qualified healthcare provider.
