Abstract

Relatively little is known about the risk of residual neurological deficit following partial complex status epilepticus (PCSE). To address this issue, we administered serial neuropsychological assessments and EEGs to a young cocaine abuser following the resolution of an extended episode of PCSE. Results suggest that PCSE may be associated with prolonged but reversible generalized neuropsychological and EEG abnormalities, as well as persistent focal deficits.
