Febrile seizures (FS) are the most common cause of seizures in children. The exact etiopathoge-
nesis is unknown but involves factors like genetic predisposition and alterations in the levels of neurotransmitters and some trace elements. The study includes 48 consecutive children with FS, and 55 healthy age matched control subjects. Calcium, magnesium and potassium concentrations in the febrile study group were lower than in the control group (p<0.05).

Iron and Gallium levels in the study group were lower than in the control group (p<0.01). Serum Selenium (p<0.001), Zinc (p<0.001) and Strontium (p0.05). The aim of the present prospective analytical case-control study was to determine whether there was any change in element levels in children with FS (Ref. 33)
