Background: Febrile status epilepticus (FSE) has been associated with hippocampal injury and subsequent mesial temporal sclerosis and temporal lobe epilepsy. However, little is known about the semiology of FSE. Methods: A prospective, multicenter study of the consequences of FSE included children, aged 1 month through 5 years, presenting with a febrile seizure lasting 30 minutes or more. Procedures included neurologic history and examination and an MRI and EEG within 72 hours. All information… Expand
Turning up the Heat on the Impact of Febrile Status Epilepticus
TLDR
This study addresses the fear that FSE may lead to hippocampal sclerosis and mesial temporal lobe epilepsy and reports the increased likelihood of finding 1.5 Tesla MRI abnormalities generally within 1 week of the FSE episode. Expand
Simple Febrile Seizures: A Benign Phenomena?
  • E. Andrade

TLDR
Most patients with febrile seizures do not require extensive investigations, but the treatment involves a customized plan, and appropriate use of preventive antiseizure medication may be a consideration. Expand
Pediatric status epilepticus
The study by Singh et al.1 in this issue of Neurology ® of new-onset seizures in children that present as status epilepticus (SE) expands our knowledge of this important area and provides valuableExpand
Hippocampal Malrotation Is Associated With Prolonged Febrile Seizures: Results of the FEBSTAT Study.
TLDR
H hippocampal malrotation is a developmental malformation that predominantly affects the left hippocampus in male patients and is more frequently found in children with prolonged febrile status epilepticus than in control subjects, providing further evidence that hippocampalmalrotation represents a pathologic error in brain development rather than a normal variant. Expand
Status epilepticus in children.
TLDR
Febrile status alone is not a risk factor for future epilepsy, but there is an increased risk of epilepsy in those whose febrile seizures were both prolonged and focal; however, this risk may be the result of the presence of pre-existing pathology predisposing to prolonged focal febrian seizures. Expand
Febrile and other occasional seizures.
TLDR
This chapter reviews the clinical presentation of the three most common forms of febrile seizures, due to fever, trauma, and intoxication. Expand
Febrile seizures: recent developments and unanswered questions
TLDR
The immediate management of FS, intermittent prophylaxis, and the effectiveness of the treatment in combination with antipyretics are presented in detail, as well as the therapeutic options and the different courses this disorder may take. Expand
High incidence of status epilepticus and ongoing seizures on arrival to the hospital due to high prevalence of febrile seizures in Izumo, Japan: A questionnaire-based study
TLDR
There was a greater incidence of status epilepticus than previously thought, possibly due to the high prevalence of febrile seizures in Japan, and it is necessary to develop an early intervention for the termination of prolonged febrian seizures. Expand
The outcomes of childhood convulsive status epilepticus

TLDR
Children's convulsive status epilepticus is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality, and Etiology but not duration is the main determinant. Expand
Long-term consequences of a prolonged febrile seizure in a dual pathology model
TLDR
It is suggested that febrile SE in the abnormal brain leads to hippocampal injury that is followed by progressive network reorganization and molecular changes that contribute to the epileptogenesis as well as the observed memory deficits. Expand

Temporal Lobe Epilepsy After Prolonged Febrile Convulsions: Excellent Outcome After Surgical Treatment
TLDR
Patients with antecedent febrile convulsions preceding onset of their habitual seizures had a significantly higher prevalence of positive family history of feBrile Convulsions, an increased incidence of retrospectively identified gestational or perinatal complications, and no foreign tissue lesions. Expand
Characteristics of medial temporal lobe epilepsy: I. Results of history and physical examination
TLDR
There is a very strong relationship between complicated febrile seizures during early childhood or infancy and the later development of medial temporal lobe epilepsy, which can be a progressive disease as evidenced by silent intervals and progressive elaboration of seizures. Expand
Febrile convulsions. Is seizure duration the most important predictor of temporal lobe epilepsy?
TLDR
In families selected to reduce genetic and phenotypic heterogeneity, a strong association was evident between febrile convulsions and temporal lobe epilepsy with mesial temporal sclerosis, and a prolonged febRIle convulsion was the most important determinant of this association. Expand
Temporal lobe epilepsy after experimental prolonged febrile seizures: prospective analysis.
TLDR
Extended experimental FS lead to later-onset limbic (temporal lobe) epilepsy in a significant proportion of rats, and to interictal epileptifom EEG abnormalities in most others, and thus represent a model that may be useful to study the relationship between FS and human temporal lobe epilepsy. Expand
Early childhood prolonged febrile convulsions, atrophy and sclerosis of mesial structures, and temporal lobe epilepsy
TLDR
There is a correlation between early childhood PFC, the severity of atrophy of mesial structures, and MTS, and MRI volumetric measurements confirm a correlation. Expand
Serial MRI after experimental febrile seizures: Altered T2 signal without neuronal death
TLDR
Serial MRIs used before and at several time points after experimental prolonged FSs to determine the prevalence and distribution of signal changes on T2‐weighted images and to investigate the pathological substrates leading to these changes. Expand
Magnetic resonance imaging evidence of hippocampal injury after prolonged focal febrile convulsions
TLDR
Evidence of preexisting hippocampal abnormalities in several infants and electrographical temporal lobe seizure activity in 1 suggests the possibility that CFCs actually originated in the temporal lobes in some patients. Expand
WHAT TYPES OF EPILEPSY ARE PRECEDED BY FEBRILE SEIZURES? A POPILATION‐BASED STUDY OF CHILDREN
TLDR
It is concluded that febrile seizures most often precede generalized tonic‐clonic afebrile seizure type and rarely precede idiopathic intractable complex partial seizures. Expand
Do generalized tonic-clonic seizures in infancy exist?
TLDR
Generalized tonic-clonic seizures are rarely, if ever, seen in infants younger than age 2 in a tertiary-care pediatric epilepsy unit, and they more commonly occur in older children, particularly in the well-characterized epilepsy syndromes of childhood and adolescence. Expand
Hippocampal malformation as a cause of familial febrile convulsions and subsequent hippocampal sclerosis.
TLDR
A subtle, pre-existing hippocampal malformation is suggested that may facilitate febrile convulsions and contribute to the development of subsequent HS in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy and antecedent febRIle Convulsions. Expand
