• type

  • activity
  • Role of trace elements like Selenium, Magnesium, Copper and Zinc have been described in association with febrile seizures (7).Trace elements appear to play a role by their ability to modulate neurotransmission by acting on ion channels and their coenzyme activity. (ac.ir)
  • factors
  • Various factors have been described in the pathophysiology of febrile seizures like bacterial and viral infections (2), susceptibility of the immature brain to temperature (3), association with interleukins (4), circulating toxins (5), trace element deficiency (6) and iron deficiency (7).
