Abstract

Background: Febrile seizure is the most common seizure disorder during childhood. Although its prognosis is appropriate, it may indicate a serious infection. Therefore, the present study aimed to investigate the prevalence of urinary tract infection (UTI) in children with febrile seizure. Methods: This is a prospective cross-sectional descriptive study conducted in 2017 in 238 children from Ilam. Data were collected using a demographic questionnaire answered by the children. The patients' records and diagnostic test results were used in a survey on disease history, considering the description of febrile seizure, the cause of referral, the necessary tests performed, body temperature measured using the axillary method, and seizure days. Data were analyzed by the SPSS version 18 software using descriptive and analytical statistics. Results: The findings showed that from among the 238 children studied, 143 (60.1) were girls, 132 (55.5) were aged 13 to 24 months, 145 (60.9) had the first seizure on the first day of admission, and 92 (38.7) had a fever with a body temperature between 37 C and 38 C. In addition, the findings showed that 28 (11.28) children had UTI and 210 (88.2) had no UTI. No correlation was found between UTI and seizure (P > 0.05). Conclusions: No correlation was found between UTI and seizure. Other studies among other children with febrile seizure should be performed. © 2018, Journal of Comprehensive Pediatrics.
