El Daraji, Mohamed Farag (2018-03-05)

Febrile seizure is the most common convulsion disorders in children, between 3 to 60 months of age. Child will become stiff or their arms and legs may start to twitch with lose consciousness and may wet or soil themselves and may also vomit and foam at the mouth, and their eyes may roll back. The exact cause is unknown but the high temperature usually those greater than 38 °C (100.4 °F) can be caused by an infection. There may also be a genetic link to febrile seizures and the chances of having a seizure are increased if a close family member has a history of them. Some studies have reported that iron deficiency could be a risk factor for febrile seizure. The present study was conducted to compare the rate of iron deficiency anemia in febrile children with and without seizure.
