Abstract


 Introduction:Children under five years of age are more prone to develop infection, as their immune system is immature. Fever is a common manifestation present in most of the infection. In some children severe fever can result convulsion. Febrile convulsions generate as much anxiety among relatives and parents.Methods and Materials: Evaluatory interventional approach was used in this study. 60 mothers of under five children were selected for the study. Structured knowledge questionnaire were used to collect the Data. Results:  Mean value of pretest is 6.02 and 12.32 and standard deviation value for pretest 2.561 and posttest 0.833. The calculated t-value is 17.428 and p-value is 0.00.Discussion: A study was conducted on incidence of febrile seizure in Finland among nulliparous pregnant women from a geographically defined area and was prospectively followed from the beginning of pregnancy till the child becomes four years of age. Data on febrile seizure, sociodemographic data, developmental mile stones and chronic diseases were prospectively collected from families and health care staff of 1033 children with febrile seizure. The average annual incidence of febrile seizure was 14% per 1000 person. The incidence rate through age 4 was 6.9% (7.3% for girls and 6.5% for boys.
