AIM :Febrile  seizure  is  the  one  of  the  most  common  convulsive  disorders, mainly  occur  following  high  fever  without  any  evidence  of  underlying  health  issues, typically   in  the  children  of  age  of  upto  6  years. The  aim  of  this  study  was  to  assess the  relationship  between  variable  causative  factor  involved  in  the  incidence  of  febrile  convulsions between the  children  referred  to  Cosmopolitan Hospital, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala (India). This  was  a hospital  based  prospective  observational  study. The  main  purpose  of  this  study  was  to identify  the  relationship  between  variable  risk  factors  associated with febrile  convulsion  in  children. The  children  of  age  upto  6 years  were  studied  to  assess  the  relationship  between  the  types of seizure ,gender ,electrolytes  and  variable  disease  conditions  which  leads  to  the  development  of  convulsive  event  in  children. The age and febrile seizure has a correlation that the children below 3 years is more hospitalized with febrile seizure. Viral fever associated febrile seizure shows more prevalence. Type of seizure and gender do not have any positive correlation in this study. Lab data provide significant positive correlation with the incidence febrile seizure. Pregnancy related complications and antenatal and natel complications also shows a significant relationship to the febrile seizure. Decreased breast feeding in the children also leads to the events of febrile seizure. family history of febrile seizure also provide a major relationship with febrile convu. Risk factor such as age, body temperature, family history, breastfeeding, low birth weight, cesarean, lab data’s that are involved in the development of febrile seizure were identified.
