Abstract

We report a case of complex partial status epilepticus presenting as recurring episodes of altered mental status and subtle automatisms after bone marrow transplantation (BMT) for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Early recognition of complex partial status epilepticus as a cause of altered mental status is important as prompt treatment with antiepileptic drugs improves neurologic outcome.
