Nonconvulsive status epilepticus cases arising in connection with cephalosporins.

Cephalosporins, particularly cefepime, exert neurotoxic side effects that can lead to status epilepticus. These neurotoxic side effects include myoclo...

Novel clinical features of nonconvulsive status epilepticus.
Nonconvulsive status epilepticus (NCSE) has rapidly expanded from classical features such as staring, repetitive blinking, chewing, swallowing, and automatism to include coma, prolonged apnea, cardiac arrest, dementia, and higher brain dysfunction, w

Nonconvulsive status epilepticus disguising as hepatic encephalopathy.
Nonconvulsive status epilepticus has become an important issue in modern neurology and epileptology. This is based on difficulty in definitively elucidating the condition and its various clinical phenomena and on our inadequate insight into the intri

Nonconvulsive status epilepticus in patients with brain tumors.
The prevalence of nonconvulsive status epilepticus (NCSE) in brain tumor patients is unknown. Since NCSE has been associated with significant mortality and morbidity, early identification is essential. This study describes the clinical and EEG charac

Levetiracetam improves disinhibitory behavior in nonconvulsive status epilepticus.
Nonconvulsive status epilepticus (NCSE) is a severe medical condition and heterogeneous disorder defined by different seizure types and diverse etiologies. NCSE occurs commonly in the elderly and is potentially misdiagnosed as a psychiatric disorder.

Efficacy of perampanel in refractory nonconvulsive status epilepticus and simple partial status epilepticus.
We provide some evidence concerning the efficacy of perampanel (PER) in refractory status epilepticus (SE). We retroactively identified patients with SE treated in our department by searching for the term "status epilepticus" in the electronic archiv

Rapid diagnosis of nonconvulsive status epilepticus using reduced-lead electroencephalography.
Electroencephalography (EEG) is indicated for diagnosing nonconvulsive status epilepticus (NCSE) in a patient who has altered level of consciousness after a motor seizure. A study in a neonatal population found 94% sensitivity and 78% specificity for

Which EEG patterns in coma are nonconvulsive status epilepticus?
Nonconvulsive status epilepticus (NCSE) is common in patients with coma with a prevalence between 5% and 48%. Patients in deep coma may exhibit epileptiform EEG patterns, such as generalized periodic spikes, and there is an ongoing debate about the r

Ictal and interictal EEG patterns in patients with nonconvulsive and subtle convulsive status epilepticus.
Electroencephalography findings in nonconvulsive or subtle convulsive status epilepticus (NCSE and SCSE, respectively) can be heterogenous. We aimed to study the different patterns on EEG in our cohort of patients.

Recurrent Nonconvulsive Status Epilepticus in a Patient with Coffin-Lowry Syndrome.
Coffin-Lowry syndrome (CLS) is a rare neurodevelopmental condition caused by heterogeneous mutations in the RPS6KA3 gene on the X chromosome, leading to severe intellectual disability and dysmorphism in men, while women are carriers and only weakly a
