Epilepsy & Seizures
Febrile seizures are the most common seizure type, affecting 3% to 4% of all children. Three features interact to produce a febrile seizure: immature brain, fever, and genetic predisposition. Although many affected children have recurrent febrile seizures, the risk of subsequent epilepsy is very small. The American Academy of Pediatrics offers guidelines for the evaluation and management of children with febrile seizures.
