Abstract

A treatment of electrical status epilepticus during childhood with relatively high doses of benzodiazepines (BZ) in short cycles (3 weeks) is proposed for subjects shown to be responsive to BZs (diazepam bolus test: DZP test). This treatment gave positive results in 7 out of 8 patients responsive to the DZP test (87%).
