Greetings doctor, I want to ask about Fever Seizures that occur in my 7-year-old child. If according to the explanation in the article about Fever Seizures occur only until the age of 5 years. Are there any abnormalities if Fever Seizures still occur in children over the age of 5 years?

1 Answer:

Good evening, thanks for the question
Febrile seizures are seizures that occur at an increase in body temperature above 38 degrees celsius without any other underlying cause. Simple febrile seizures are classified as harmless and generally non-recurring, and complaints will disappear completely after 5 years of age.
Some risk factors for recurrence of febrile seizures in children include:
- Family history of febrile seizures
- Age less than 12 months when you first have a febrile seizure
- Fever is not too high during seizures
- Rapid seizures after a fever
However, cases of febrile seizures have a risk of becoming epileptic later in life if the following are found in children:
- Nerve disorders or developmental disorders that are evident before the first febrile seizure
- Complex febrile seizures
- History of epilepsy in parents or siblings
Epilepsy is a serious complication of febrile seizures, especially the first febrile seizure that appears at a very young age. According to research, febrile seizures can persist after the age of 5 years and is a danger sign that it will develop into epilepsy. In such conditions the child requires special treatment by a doctor to assess the risk.
Therefore it is advisable to conduct further consultations with a pediatric neurologist for further examinations and action plans.
That's all, hope you can help. Wassalam.
