This study was performed to investigate some clinical parameters of febrile seizures (FSs) in patients with epilepsy, testing any possible correlation between those parameters and the type of subsequent epilepsy. One hundred and nine patients with epilepsy having a history of FSs were evaluated for age at onset of FSs, interval between first FS and first afebrile seizure, recurrence rate, type of FSs, incidence of febrile status, family history for epilepsy and for FSs and the neurological status of the patient. The epilepsy that developed subsequently, were classified as generalised versus partial and also according to their syndromic subgroups. In temporal lobe epilepsy with mesial temporal sclerosis (TLE–MTS), statistical analyses revealed a younger age at onset of FSs, and a high incidence of episodes of febrile status and of complex FSs. Clinical characteristics of FSs followed by partial epilepsies were younger age at onset, presence of focal features and of febrile status, longer interval between the first FS and the first afebrile seizure, and a high incidence of FSs in the family history. In generalised epilepsies, however, a shorter interval between the first FS and the first afebrile seizure, a high incidence of single FS and of a family history of epilepsy were predominating characteristics. Results suggest that certain features of FSs may be predictive of a particular type of subsequent epilepsy.
