In brief: Febrile Seizure

A febrile seizure is an episode of convulsions associated with a seizure.
It normally occurs in children between 6 and 60 months old. It tends to last less than 5 minutes. It is a common and self-limited condition that is not related to other illnesses. Hope that helps!

In brief: Generalized seizures

Simple febrile seizures are always generalized seizures.
they involve the whole body, either stiffening, jerking of all extremities, or just staring spells.
