NINDS:45 Febrile seizures are convulsions brought on by a fever in infants or small children. During a febrile seizure, a child often loses consciousness and shakes.

MalaCards: Febrile Seizures, also known as febrile convulsions, is related to dravet syndrome and epilepsy syndrome. An important gene associated with Febrile Seizures is GABRG2 (gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) A receptor, gamma 2), and among its related pathways are Nicotine addiction and GABA signaling in brain. The drugs phenobarbital and phenobarbital sodium and the compounds (+)-bicuculline and (-)-bicuculline methochloride have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include temporal lobe, brain and cortex, and related mouse phenotypes are mortality/aging and behavior/neurological.
