Febrile seizures in an adult patient in the icu with a head injury and early onset pneumonia, make sense?

In brief: Yes

I wouldn't call them febrile seizures.
That is a label we use for kids who have unexplained seizures during a febrile illness. An adult with a head injury has a potential reason for seizures and any fever would likely bring it out.
