Abstract

Sepsis- Induced Refractory Status Epilepticus: A Case Report

Sepsis is often accompanied by various degrees of mental status deterioration. It can range from slight confusion to coma and can be, although rarely, accompanied by focal neurological signs. Presentation as status epilepticus requires early recognition and treatment due to the fact that it carries a significant amount of complications and mortality.
