Enteral topiramate in a pediatric patient with refractory status epilepticus: a case report and review of the literature.
We describe the use of topiramate in a healthy 12-year-old (88-kg) male who developed refractory generalized convulsive status epilepticus. Seizures persisted despite aggressive use of benzodiazepines (intravenous lorazepam; oral clorazepate), barbit

Intravenous levetiracetam versus phenobarbital in children with status epilepticus or acute repetitive seizures.
This study compared the efficacy and tolerability of intravenous (i.v.) phenobarbital (PHB) and i.v. levetiracetam (LEV) in children with status epilepticus (SE) or acute repetitive seizure (ARS).

Transition from intravenous to enteral ketamine for treatment of nonconvulsive status epilepticus.
Nonconvulsive status epilepticus (NCSE) is a diagnosis that is often challenging and one that may progress to refractory NCSE. Ketamine is a noncompetitive N-methyl-d-aspartate antagonist that increasingly has been used to treat refractory status epi

Status epilepticus following local anesthesia in a previously healthy adult.
Local anesthesia could result in lethal complications if injected in highly vascularized area. Dentist should take care to avoid such complications.
