    OBJECTIVES: To review the evidence regarding the effectiveness of orally ingested Echinacea extracts in reducing the incidence, severity, or duration of acute upper respiratory infections (URIs). SEARCH STRATEGIES: Information from a wide range of sources was used as background material. More than 100 articles,[…][]

  • Acute Otitis Media

    Signs Examination may reveal: High temperature (febrile convulsions may be associated with the temperature rise in AOM). A red, yellow or cloudy tympanic membrane.[] In a small child with a high temperature there is a risk of febrile convulsions. This is discussed more fully in its own article. Rare complications include Petrositis.[]

  • Influenza

    Abstract Immune-mediated necrotizing myopathy is a very rare inflammatory disease affecting skeletal muscles. Immune-mediated necrotizing myopathy may be associated with myositis-specific autoantibodies including anti-single recognition particle and anti-3-hydroxy-3- methylglutaryl-coenzyme A reductase, infectious[…][]

    Roseola - Wikipedia In rare cases, this can cause febrile convulsions (also known as febrile seizures or "fever fits") due to the sudden rise in body temperature, but in many[]

  • Epilepsy

    Evidence for a novel gene for familial febrile convulsions, FEB2, linked to chromosome 19p in an extended family from the Midwest.[] Evidence for digenic inheritance in a family with both febrile convulsions and temporal lobe epilepsy implicating chromosomes 18qter and 1q25-q31.[] Suggestion of a major gene for familial febrile convulsions mapping to 8q13-21. J Med Genet. 1996; 33 (4) 308-312 9 Johnson E W, Dubovsky J, Rich S S et al..[]

  • Scarlet Fever

    Using paracetamol in children or babies does not reduce the risk of febrile convulsions.[]

  • Erysipelas

    BACKGROUND/AIMS: Most studies on the epidemiology of erysipelas are done in hospitals, resulting in patient selection. The aim of this study is to determine epidemiological characteristics and comorbidity of erysipelas based on primary care data. METHODS: Incidence rate study and nested case-control study. A[…][]

  • Pneumococcal Pneumonia

    PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to investigate whether exposure to nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) at the early stage of severe pneumococcal community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) requiring intensive care unit (ICU) admission may affect its presentation and outcome. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Medical[…][]

  • Viral Gastroenteritis

    The frequency of clustered seizures in the FS group was considerably higher than that of febrile seizures in general and was also as high as that of "convulsions with mild[] On the whole, the clinical features of febrile seizures during viral gastroenteritis may closely resemble those of "convulsions with mild gastroenteritis" (CwG) than those[] All seizure patients, whether febrile or afebrile, presented with generalized tonic clonic seizures (GTCS), complex partial seizures (CPS), or both.[]

  • Dravet Syndrome

    convulsions.[] They are most often associated with a high temperature (febrile seizure or febrile convulsion).[] The side of the body involved in a hemiclonic convulsion can vary from febrile seizure to febrile seizure.[]
