Febrile seizures
Posted by dkwinter

     Generalized tonic-clonic seizure
     Duration less than 15 minutes
     Associated with a rapid rise in body temperature
     Occurs in children ages 3 months to 5 years
     Not associated with a postictal period. The child usually rapidly regains alertness.
     Intracranial mass or infection should be a concern if the duration of seizure is greater than 15 minutes or if altered mental status persists after the cessation of seizure activity.
