Abstract: Two distinctive epileptic encephalopathies, febrile infection-related epilepsy syndrome (FIRES) and Dravet syndrome (DS), present with febrile status epilepticus in a normal child followed by refractory focal seizures and cognitive decline although there are differentiating features. Abnormalities of the sodium channel gene SCN1A are found in 75% of DS patients. We found no SCN1A mutations or copy number variants in 10 patients with FIRES. Other genetic etiologies deserve consideration.
