Severe hemispatial neglect as a manifestation of seizures and nonconvulsive status epilepticus: utility of prolonged EEG monitoring.

Seizures and status epilepticus causing hemispatial neglect syndromes are seldom diagnosed, in part because, without motor signs, EEGs are not perform...

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

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

Nonconvulsive status epilepticus and Creutzfeldt-Jakob-like EEG changes in a case of lithium toxicity.
We report a case of a 63-year-old lady with bipolar affective disorder on lithium who was brought to our emergency center in a comatose state. Neurologically, the patient was comatose and had generalized hypotonia and hyporeflexia. Lithium toxicity w

Nonconvulsive seizures and status epilepticus in pediatric head trauma: A national survey.
It remains uncertain whether nonconvulsive seizures and nonconvulsive status epilepticus in pediatric traumatic brain injury are deleterious to the brain and/or impact the recovery from injury. Consequently, optimal electroencephalographic surveillan

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

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.

Amplitude-integrated EEG revealed nonconvulsive status epilepticus in children with non-accidental head injury.
We describe the clinical course and amplitude-integrated EEG findings in three children with non-accidental head injury and discuss on the importance of continuous aEEG monitoring in infants.

Stimulus-induced generalized epileptiform discharges: an unrecognized EEG pattern in refractory nonconvulsive status epilepticus.
To report an unrecognized EEG pattern occurring in patients with coma with nonconvulsive status epilepticus (NCSE) treated with thiopental and characterized by a high amplitude generalized sharp wave that was induced by isolated or repetitive low fre
