Febrile Convulsions: Their Significance for Later Intellectual Development and Behaviour.
Wallace, S.J.
Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry and Allied Disciplines, v25 n1 p15-21 Jan 1984
Concludes that intellectual and behavioral outcomes in children who have had febrile convulsions are dependent on preseizure status, unilaterality of the initial fit, recurrent febrile seizures, continued neurological abnormalities, the advent of fits when afebrile, and socioeconomic status. Suggests that a febrile convulsion should be followed up by a neurodevelopmental examination. (RH)
