Özet

OBJECTIVE: Most febrile seizures occur outside of hospitals, and in most cases, information about the characteristics of the seizures is obtained from the parents. This makes it difficult to differentiate between simple and complex seizures. The aim of this study is to evaluate the significance of the Neutrophil-Lymphocyte Ratio (NLR) and the red blood cell (erythrocyte) distribution width (RDW) in distinguishing between simple and complex febrile seizures.
