Question:
If a child has a history of febrile seizures associated with ear infection, does this pose an additional risk of seizure during dental procedures conducted under anesthesia? The child is now 4 years old. The first febrile seizure occured at age 14 months. He is not under medication. EEG's have been normal. Projected time of procedures to be done is 90 minutes, with 120 minutes of anesthesia. ...Linda

Answer:
Linda, I'm assumming that you are having treatment performed in the operating room. The good thing is your child will be under the care of an anesthesiologist, as well as the dentist while treatment is rendered. I have not heard of any problems associated with the treatment and seizures. It seems as though the seizures are under control, so the risk is minimal. Another suggestion to make sure there is not a problem is to have your child re-evaluated by your Neurologist prior to any treatment being performed.
