Zusammenfassung

Der Fieberkrampf ist das häufigste klinisch-neurologische Symptom, das zu einer akuten Vorstellung beim Kinderarzt oder in einer Notfallambulanz führt. Er tritt bei etwa 2–5 % aller Kinder zwischen dem 6. Lebensmonat und dem 5. Lebensjahr auf. In der Mehrzahl der Fälle handelt es sich um selbstlimitierende Ereignisse ohne Langzeitfolgen oder Komplikationen. Bei einem geringeren Teil der Patienten ist eine umfangreiche neurologische Diagnostik notwendig. Eines der wichtigsten Elemente der Therapie ist die Beratung der Eltern.

Febrile seizures

Investigation, therapy and counseling

Abstract

Febrile seizures are the most common neurological condition in childhood leading to an acute presentation to a pediatrician or consultation in an emergency department. The risk of a febrile seizure is estimated to be approximately 2–5 % in children 6–60 months of age. In the majority of cases the seizures are self-limiting and cease without medical intervention. The disorder is age limited and does not lead to neurological long-term sequelae but a small proportion of patients require a thorough neurological diagnostic evaluation. A comprehensive counseling of the parents is mandatory in children with febrile seizures.
