Disease Ontology:8 An idiopathic generalized epilepsy that is characterized by febrile seizures often with accessory afebrile generalized tonic-clonic seizures with childhood onset.

MalaCards: Generalized Epilepsy with Febrile Seizures Plus, also known as GEFS+, is related to febrile seizures and epilepsy syndrome. An important gene associated with Generalized Epilepsy with Febrile Seizures Plus is SCN1B (sodium channel, voltage-gated, type I, beta subunit), and among its related pathways are Nicotine addiction and GABA signaling in brain. The compounds (+)-bicuculline and (-)-bicuculline methochloride have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Related mouse phenotypes are reproductive system and behavior/neurological.
