Febrile convulsions in Sudanese children

Ahmed EI Nur Abdalla, Abdel Moneim EI Seed.

Abstract
Seventy children with febrile convulsions presenting to Khartoum Children's Emergency Hospital in the period December 1981 - April 1982 were studied. The hospital prevalence of febrile convulsions was found to be 1.8% The mean age was 30.3 months. There was a preponderance of males being about two thirds of total. The mean ages at presentation for males and females were not significantly different. No particular social class was found to have higher representation in children with febrile convulsions. A family history of convulsions was obtained in 51.4% of patients (40% febrile and 11.4% non-febrile). The only laboratory investigation found-to be useful was a blood film for malaria parasites. Bronchopneumonia, malaria and upper respiratory infections accounted for about two thirds of the associated illnesses.

Key words: Convulsions, febrile, Sudan
