Febrile Convulsion

A seizure is a neurological event where there is a synchronous discharge of many neurons. Each individual has a ‘threshold’ at which their neurons will begin to do this. It is thought that this threshold is at least partly genetically determined. This threshold can be affected by: External stimulation – e.g. flashing lights Cerebral injury

Carbamazepine versus phenobarbitone monotherapy (single drug treatment) for epilepsy | Cochrane

Epilepsy is a common neurological disorder in which abnormal electrical discharges from the brain cause recurrent seizures. We studied two types of epileptic seizures in this review: generalised onset seizures in which electrical discharges begin in one part of the brain and move throughout the brain, and partial onset seizures in which the seizure is generated in and affects one part of the brain (the whole hemisphere of the brain or part of a lobe of the brain). For around 70% of people with epilepsy, a single antiepileptic drug can control generalised onset or partial onset seizures. Worldwide, phenobarbitone (PB) and carbamazepine (CBZ) are commonly used antiepileptic drugs; however, CBZ is used more commonly in the USA and Europe because of concerns over side-effects associated with PB, particularly concerns over behavioural changes in children treated with PB. Phenobarbitone is still commonly used in developing countries in Africa, Asia, and South America because of the low cost of the drug.
