OBJECTIVES To determine the relative magnitudes of neuron-specific enolase (NSE) levels after complex partial status epilepticus (SE), absence SE, generalized convulsive SE, and subclinical generalized convulsive SE (frequently referred to as acute symptomatic myoclonic status epilepticus). BACKGROUND NSE is a marker of acute brain injury and blood-brain barrier dysfunction, which is elevated in SE. METHODS Serum NSE levels were drawn in 31 patients 1, 2, 3, and 7 days after SE.
