Key Study: Utility of initial EEG in first complex febrile seizure

Visit

Harini C, Nagarajan E, Kimia AA, de Carvalho RM, An S, Bergin AM, Takeoka M, ...

This retrospective study examined the utility of detected epileptiform abnormalities on the initial EEG following a first complex febrile seizure in predicting subsequent epilepsy.

Key Study: Emergency Management of febrile status epilepticus: results of the FEBSTAT study

Visit

Seinfeld S, Shinnar S, Sun S, Hesdorffer DC, Deng X, Shinnar RC, O'Hara K, No...

The FEBSTAT study is a prospective study of the consequences of febrile status epilepticus. Acute management, and the relationship between treatment delay, total seizure duration and associated morbidity are analyzed.

Key Study: Acute EEG findings in children with febrile status epilepticus: results of the FEBSTAT study

Visit

Nordli DR Jr, Mosh SL, Shinnar S, Hesdorffer DC, Sogawa Y, Pellock JM, Lewis ...

Objective: The FEBSTAT (Consequences of Prolonged Febrile Seizures) study prospectively addresses the relationships among serial EEG, MRI, and clinical follow-up in a cohort of children followed from the time of presentation with febrile status epilepticus.

Key Study: Risk of intracranial pathologic conditions requiring emergency intervention after a first complex febrile seizure episode among children

Visit

Teng D, Dayan P, Tyler S, Hauser WA, Chan S, Leary L, Hesdorffer D

Objective: To determine the likelihood of intracranial pathologic conditions requiring emergency neurosurgical or medical intervention among children without meningitis who presented to the pediatric emergency department after a first complex febrile seizure.

Key Study: Meningitis is a common cause of convulsive status epilepticus with fever

Visit

Chin RF, Neville BG, Scott RC

Objective: In children with convulsive status epilepticus with fever, to determine the likelihood of acute bacterial meningitis, the proportion that are treated with antibiotics, and the proportion that have diagnostic CSF sampling.
