The broad spectrum of first seizure and newly-diagnosed epilepsy

The assessment of patients presenting with a first seizure (FS) is not trivial at all. This frequent clinical scenario [1] deserves an extremely careful clinical exploration and a systematic diagnostic algorithm to disentangle contributing factors, analyze individual predisposing variables, arrive at a reasonable first “working diagnosis”, and to provide the best possible counseling in a situation of huge uncertainty [2,3].

Survey of the diagnostic and therapeutic approach to new-onset refractory status epilepticus

New-onset refractory status epilepticus (NORSE) is a syndrome of prolonged seizures that typically develops in otherwise healthy, young individuals without a history of epilepsy or obvious initial cause. The term was first coined in a case series of 7 young women with prior good health who developed refractory status epilepticus (RSE) with an extensive, negative diagnostic work-up and poor outcome [1]. While the incidence of RSE is estimated between 9–43% of all episodes of SE, no such data exists for ...
