Seizures and Fever (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
The child’s doctor should provide guidance as to when a follow-up visit is indicated. In the case of simple febrile seizure, the need for a short-term follow-up visit would depend on the nature of the illness causing the fever. The child’s physician can use the follow-up visit as an opportunity to discuss febrile seizures with the parents.
