Paediatrician

I am not sure what you mean by a protruding forehead. A prominent forehead is not associated with epilepsy and these children are often very clever.There are other causes of a prominent forehead such as rickets and certain forms of anaemia which are also not associated with epilepsy. If there is a very unusual shape to the forehead especially after trauma at birth or a head injury during childhood, there may be an association with epilepsy. In any case the child should be seen by a paediatric neurologist.
