Febrile seizures are associated with fevers and typically occur in young children. They may happen when a child has a cold, the flu or an ear infection.

Typical febrile seizures are brief, but they can last for more than 15 minutes. About one in 25 children experiences a febrile seizure at least once during their childhood. Two out of five children who have a febrile seizure are at an increased risk of having another one. Having a febrile seizure does not mean your child has epilepsy.
