Super Refractory Status Epilepticus: A Case Report from Livingstone Central Hospital


Background: Status Epilepticus (SE) is defined as more than five minutes of persistent seizure activity without full recovery of consciousness in between the seizures. If SE fails to respond to two antiepileptic drugs, it is called refractory status epilepticus (RSE) and if it continues or recurs 24 hours after anesthesia, it is called super refractory status epilepticus (SRSE).
