Trend of Subsequent Epilepsy in Children with Recurrent Febrile Seizures: A Retrospective Matched Cohort Study


Febrile seizure (FS) represents the most common seizure disorder in childhood, and the prognosis is usually benign and self-limiting [1]. The vast majority of children with FS have a normal long-term outcome, and population-based studies show that the absolute risk of unprovoked seizures after febrile seizures is low, which indicates that most FS is an age-specific marker of seizure susceptibility [2,3]. When a simple or complex FS occurs repeatedly, it is considered a recurrent FS and linked to an increased risk of epilepsy [4].
