Febrile convulsions

Febrile convulsions are a type of fit (seizure) that can happen when a child, usually between the ages of six months and five years, has a high temperature. 

One in 50 children will have had a febrile convulsion by the time they are five years old. Therefore it is a very common illness, which children usually outgrow without any lasting effects.
