Abstract

Convulsive status epilepticus (CSE) in childhood is associated
with fever in up to 54% of patients (Raspall-Chaure
et al. 2007). The prognosis of CSE associated with fever
may be related to the cause of the fever (e.g., meningitis is
more likely to cause brain injury than an upper respiratory
tract infection) and to whether the child had had a preexisting
neurological condition. Therefore, it is important to
define different types of CSE associated with fever in order
to define mechanisms and outcomes of CSE associated
with fever.
