BACKGROUND Ictal-interictal continuum (IIC) continuous EEG (cEEG) patterns including periodic discharges and rhythmic delta activity are associated with poor outcome and in the appropriate clinical context, IIC patterns may represent "electroclinical" status epilepticus (SE). To clarify the significance of IIC patterns and their relationship to "electrographic" SE, we investigated FDG-PET imaging as a complementary metabolic biomarker of SE among patients with IIC patterns. METHODS A single… CONTINUE READING
