Abstract: 

Febrile convulsions are the most common convulsive seizures in infants and preschool children (1, 2). Such events have great impact on the parents and are a leading cause of parental anxiety and family disruption (3). Pathophysiology of febrile convulsions has not been known.2 Genetics and environment have been implicated in their generation (4). Trace elements have been hypothesised to involve in the pathophysiology of febrile convulsions. Recent studies have shown lower post ictal serum zinc levels in children with febrile convulsions (5). Considering the importance of febrile convulsions in our province (south west of Iran) and the theorised implication of hypozincemia in their occurrence, we carried out a case-control study to determine post ictal serum zinc level in a group of children with simple febrile convulsions comparing by those of a control group of febrile children with the same age.
