Abstract
study regarding correlation between serum zinc levels and simple febrile seizures. ...200 pts were taken in 1 yr duration .100 with simple febrile seizures. ..and 100 with only fever without febrile seizures....We found a significant difference in serum zinc levels in two populations thus showing low zinc level may predispose to febrile seizures
