Activity recording is turned off.

Outcome was determined by the underlying cause. SPSE was more common over the age of 50. In 20 patients without previous epilepsy stroke was the most frequent cause (75%). A retrospective case note review was conducted of 47 patients of 15 years and older who had sustained simple partial status epilepticus (SPSE) in The Netherlands between 1980 and 1987. In one patient the continuing epileptic activity may have caused neuronal damage. Six of 27 patients with previous epilepsy had an acute symptomatic cause. In 46 patients the type of SPSE was somatomotor (in four adversive), and in one aphasic with visual and auditory hallucinations.

Complex partial status epilepticus (CPSE) is one of the non-convulsive forms of status epilepticus, a rare form of epilepsy defined by its recurrent nature. CPSE is characterized by seizures involving long-lasting stupor, staring and unresponsiveness. Sometimes this is accompanied by motor automatisms, such as eye twitching.

The EEG is also needed to differentiate between absence status epilepticus (which affects the entire brain), and CPSE, which only affects one region. As is the case with other non-convulsive status epilepticus forms, CPSE is dangerously underdiagnosed. This is due to the potentially fatal yet veiled nature of the symptoms. Usually, an electroencephalogram, or EEG, is needed to confirm a neurologist's suspicions.

Complex partial status epilepticus.. Most of the patients had convulsions that were very difficult to treat in addition to prolonged confusional states. The latter.

The following consensus definition was proposed in 2004 as a result of an international meeting on NCSE: "NCSE is a term used to denote a range of conditions in which electrographic seizure activity is prolonged and results in nonconvulsive clinical symptoms". 8 Clinical manifestations were acknowledged to vary depending on etiological and anatomical features. This proposal was completed by the setting of a minimal seizure duration of 30 minutes for the diagnosis of NCSE, and by a description of EEG patterns that clearly denote NCSE, which are outlined below.
