Simple Febrile Convulsions
These are convulsions associated with fever and infection, and is commonest causes of seizures during infancy and early childhood. These convulsions are not related to degree of fever as these may occur even with moderate fever and these does not last for more than 10 minutes. The fits occur within 24 hours of the onset of fever.
Febrile convulsions are unusual before the age of six months and after five years and most children may have one or two episodes only and may have no further seizures.
