abstract

  • In our cohort, awake NCSE was more common than comatose NCSE. Treatment was successful in patients with heterogeneous central nervous system disease. EEG evaluation should be considered in patients with cancer because NCSE is treatable despite a high prevalence of structural brain disease. Nonconvulsive status epilepticus control did not always require intubation and burst suppression, but frequently required three or more antiepileptic drugs.
