Are there different types of febrile convulsions?
There are two main types of febrile convulsions: simple convulsions last less than 15 minutes, affect general areas of the body and don't recur within 24 hours. Complex convulsions last longer than 15 minutes, affect specific areas of the body and do recur within 24 hours.
