Treatment of refractory complex-partial status epilepticus with propofol: Case report



Treatment of refractory complex-partial status epilepticus with propofol: Case report



Epilepsia 41(1): 105-109



Purpose: We report a case of a 65-year-old woman who had a subarachnoid and intraventricular hemorrhage secondary to rupture of an anterior communicating artery aneurysm and developed nonconvulsive status epilepticus of the complex-partial type, refractory to phenytoin (PHT), phenobarbital (PB), valproate (VPA), and lorazepam (LZP). Methods: Three weeks after diagnosis of nonconvulsive status epilepticus, general anesthesia was induced with propofol and titrated to burst suppression on the electroencephalogram (EEG). Results: During propofol infusion, the serum VPA level declined markedly, and despite >3 g daily doses, did not return to the therapeutic range, until several days after propofol was discontinued. Continuous propofol infusion was stopped after 7 days, and the patient recovered consciousness. Despite further complications, she gradually regained normal function and was discharged home 4 months after surgery. Conclusions: This is the first case of nonconvulsive status epilepticus successfully treated with propofol.
