Purpose: Despite the fact that socioeconomic and environmental factors of a population are changing over time, there are few studies focusing on the effects of sociodemographic factors on the prevalence of febrile seizures (FS). This study was designed to find out the prevalence of FS and to investigate the effect of socio-cultural and economic factors on this prevalence among the Turkish school children.
