Febrile seizures, the most common type of seizures in infants and young children, continue to be the subject of intense interest and controversy among physicians and researchers. But many unanswered questions remain: How do fevers generate seizures; why only in children; why only in SOME children? Are the seizures dangerous? Do they af...
