Status epilepticus refers to a prolonged seizure state, usually taken as lasting 30 min or longer. This review considers recent studies of the epidemiology of status epilepticus; these have confirmed the high incidence and the high associated mortality and morbidity. Advances in the management of status epilepticus are also reviewed but despite these advances there is still a lack of good comparative studies on which to base treatment regimens.
