Abstract

Super-refractory status epilepticus is continuous un-abated, prolonged seizure activity lasting more than 24 hours despite aggressive treatment including general anesthesia. There is ongoing serious damage to the neuraxis in such cases if seizures continue over longer time. The important issue in the management is to prevent the damage by interfering its activity liberally in the initial stage of the seizures itself. As the seizures continue, structural as well molecular changes of the neurons could interfere in the management profile also, however aggressive, it could be.
