Febrile seizures are very common, occurring in up to 2% to 4% of all infants and children who are between 6 months and 5 years of age. The most common age is when children are around 1 year (ie, 12 months) to 1½ years (ie, 18 months) of age. Children younger than 12 months at the time of the first simple febrile seizure have approximately a 50% chance of having another, while children older than 12 months when they have the first seizure have about a 30% chance of having a second one. Most children out-grow febrile seizures by the time they get to school age. A very small number of children who have febrile seizures will go on to develop epilepsy.
