Abstract: This article discusses febrile seizures, generalized epilepsy with febrile seizures plus, and Dravet's syndrome.It can be difficult for patients and their families to comprehend what it means to have a seizure disorder with a genetic cause. Nurses caring for patients with seizure disorders require knowledge of the condition, its causes, treatment, and prognosis to better care for and inform their patients.It is important for all specialists working with pediatric populations to understand possible causes of seizure disorders linked to febrile episodes, its diagnosis, and treatment, and their responsibility to provide pertinent education to patients and their families.
