Abstract

Nonconvulsive status epilepticus (NCSE), defined as changes in behavior and/or mental processes from baseline with continuous epileptiform discharges, remains a diagnostic and treatment challenge. Here, we present a 68-year-old female who developed 3 episodes of NCSE 10. years after a viral meningoencephalitis which gradually progressed to left hemispheric leukoencephalopathy. In this case, we hypothesize that immune-mediated mechanisms and perhaps genetic predisposition played a role in epileptogenesis, and these will be discussed.This article is part of a Special Issue entitled "Status Epilepticus".
