Abstract

Three hundred and ten children with febrile convulsions were studied. Follow-up ranged from 6 months to 7 years (median duration time 3,5 years). Our aim was to make a comparison between diazepam and phenobarbital prophylaxis. Risk factors for predicting recurrences of febrile seizures were considered. Our findings indicate that in children ≤15 months of age, without risk factors, oral diazepam should be preferred to phenobarbital prophylaxis. Our data suggest that diazepam should be used soon after hyperthermia, continued for all the duration of the fever, than discontinued gradually 1-2 days after fever disappearance. Continuous phenobarbital prophylaxis should be considered when family history of epilepsy is present.
