Etiology, Epidemiologic Characteristics and Clinical Pattern of Children with Febrile Convulsion Admitted to Hospitals of Germi and Parsabad towns in 2016

English Abstract

background & purpose: Febrile convulsion is the most Common neurological disorder in children. Despite the studies, there are always controversies about the clinical and epidemiological patterns regarding the effect of genetic factors and climatic conditions on its incidence. The present study was carried out to investigate the etiologic, epidemiologic and clinical features of febrile seizure in children admitted to the Children’s Hospital of Germi and Parsabad in Ardebil province.Methodology: This retrospective descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted on 148 cases of admitted children due to febrile convulsion from April to March 2016 in Parsabad and Germi hospitals. The used instrument was a researcher-made questionnaire including demographic data and characteristics of the child’s seizure attack. Validity of questionnaire was determined using the content validity method and its reliability was also measured by the observational method. Data were analyzed using SPSS version 22 and descriptive statistics of mean and standard deviation, Chi-square and T-test. Findings: The prevalence of febrile convulsion in Germi and Parsabad during a year was 6.25%. Among 148 children, 87 children were male and 61 of them were females. The average age of patients was 24.6 ± 15.15 months and the peak of febrile seizure prevalence was between the ages of 1 to 2 years, and the majority of the cases had (81.8%) simple febrile seizure. The most common cause of fever in patients was upper respiratory infection (39.2%) and diarrhea (18.2%), respectively. There was a significant relationship between previous history of seizure, duration of seizure, age of child, duration of fever onset to seizure occurrence and seizure type(p<0/05). Conclusion: This study showed that the prevalence of febrile convulsion in children younger than 2 years old is more common in males and prevalence of simple seizure is more common compared to complex seizure. Also, the history of seizure, seizure duration, child’s age, and duration of fever onset to seizure occurrence are effective in seizure incidence
