The procedure in question is a successful interactive diagnostic-therapeutic algorithm of care for a juvenile patient with prolonged complicated course of febrile seizure. The choice of answers regarding the correct course of treatment is formally and contextually balanced and well chosen from the didactic point of view. Authors had purposefully chosen an atypical, more severe and more complicated course of febrile seizure as a scenario to demonstrate the wider complexity of differential diagnostics and secondary examinations required. On the other hand for clinical course of treatment in a non-complicated febrile seizure scenario it would be sufficient to consult a paediatrician and a paediatric neurologist. Algorithm is without a doubt suitable for acquaintance of medical students with the correct procedures in critical situations, however it would be necessary to revise and complete the text if it was to be used for post-gradual educational purposes.
