Answer

In roseola infantum, complications are rare. Given that seroconversion is practically universal, finding any of the complications that have been reported in the gastrointestinal, central nervous, pulmonary, and hematopoietic systems is rare.

Children who have seizures with roseola are not expected to have further febrile or nonfebrile seizures.
