In brief: No

True febrile seizures occur in children from 4 months to 6 years.
In adults, a fever may precipitate a seizure if there is an abnormality in the brain that exists. The fever might lower a persons threshold for having a seizure but is not considered a febrile seizure.

In brief: No

If an adult male had a seizure with a fever, it would not be classified as a febrile seizure and he would have a thorough evaluation.
