These trig- gers remain a matter of much debate and are not helpful in directing clinical management. The Consequences of Prolonged Febrile Seizures in Childhood FEBSTAT study, an ongoing multicenter prospective longitudinal study, is providing valuable insights into the subset of patients who develop febrile status epilepticus, the most life-threatening type of febrile seizures with potential long-term consequences. Long-term management requires thorough assessment and risk stratification to devise a customized plan for each child, paying attention to the caregiver situation at home and day care.
It is im- portant to recognize this condition and offer a customized evidence-based plan of care to each family. The majority of children with febrile seizures have nor- mal growth and development. IIVmedical history and intellectual ability at 5 years of age. Acute abortive treatment of febrile seizures using a commercially available rectal delivery kit has gained widespread use by nonmedical caregivers as a first-line treatment at home.
A 2- to 3-day course of oral diazepam or clobazam was used successfully to pre- vent recurrences. In addition, benzodiazepines can cause sedation, can interfere with hydra- tion and feeding, and may delay the recognition of a serious illness. However, one should keep in mind that a subset of children with prolonged febrile seizures or febrile status epilepticus could develop long- term neurologic consequences.
I have some feedback on: Long-term treatmentwith daily anticonvulsants may be justifiable only in a small subset of children with complex febrile seizures and febrile status epilepticus with multiple risk factors that portend a high risk of epilepsy.
Brain ; pt 3: When such risk factors exist alone or in combina- tion, it may be prudent to develop an acute seizure intervention at home, fol- lowed by initiating an emergency med- ical services call for early and effective treatment of potential febrile status epi- lepticus.
Take a look at our subscription options. Most febrile seizures occur at or around the onset of fever.
The entered sign-in details are incorrect. Therefore, it may be prudent to convylsao administra- tion of rectal diazepam at the onset of KEY POINTS h The risk of developmental, behavioral, and academic disability in children with febrile seizures is no greater than in the general population. Most important treatment efforts are directed at caregiver education and, when appropriate, on effective use of abortive seizure treatment at home.
The majority of children can bemanaged by application of the essential clinical principles outlined in this article.
IVprevalence and recurrence in the first five febrkl of life. Epidemiology of febrile and afebrile convulsions in children in Japan. In this study, even the subjects who received medication prior to emergency department arrival seized for a median of 81 minutes.
No guidelines exist for initiation of daily anticonvulsants in febrile seizures, and it remains a matter of clinical judgment.

Caregivers should be cau- tioned that if the convulsion continues after rectal diazepam total duration longer than 5 minutes or sensorium does not recover, emergency medical services should be immediately con- tacted for treatment of potential fe- brile status epilepticus.

Profilaxia intermitente com diazepam via oral na convulsão febril: estudo de 82 casos
Most fevers and infections that cause febrile seizures are relatively benign and do not require extensive testing or procedures. Genetics seem to play a major role in febrile seizures. In a case- control study that compared children with a first febrile seizure, febrile status epilepticus was associated with younger age, lower body temperature, longer dura- tion of unrecognized fever before febrile seizure, female sex, documented struc- tural temporal lobe abnormalities on a previous brain MRI, and a first-degree relative with febrile seizures.

Other pathophysiologic triggering factors, such as rate of rise of fever, peak body convuosao during the illness, vac- cinations mainly diphtheria-pertussis- tetanus and measles-mumps-rubellalow birth weight and in utero growth retardation, respiratory alkalosis, and systemic release of proinflammatory cy- tokines have been reported.
Human herpesvirus 6 and 7 in febrile status epilepticus: Phe- nobarbital and valproate are touted to successfully reduce the recurrence of febrile seizures; however, they may not reduce the ultimate risk of devel- oping epilepsy.
A study concluded that once established, febrile status epilepticus rarely stops sponta- neously, and it is fairly resistant to anti- epileptic medications. A few studies comvulsao reported ben- efit from intermittent conbulsao during fever for preventing febrile sei- zures and reducing emergency depart- ment visits and hospital admissions.
It is important to keep in mind that the majority of children with febrile seizures do not have a family history of them, and ge- netic testing is not routinely warranted.
Earlier onset of effective treatment results in shorter total seizure duration. Prompt attention to diagnose the cause of the fever is es- sential. The fever of febrile seizures is commonly due to self-limiting viral infections affecting ear, nose, and throat or respiratory or gastrointestinal systems, and the risk of CNS infection is low.
