Abstract

Among 1,129 in-hospital patients, affected by acute or chronic cerebrovascular diseases, 58 presented with early or late epileptic seizures. The fits were related to single or multiple ischemic as well as hemorrhagic lesions. Subcortical structures were involved in 12 cases (22%). Clinical features included convulsive and nonconvulsive status epilepticus (19%). PLEDs were the prominent paroxysmal EEG findings (19%). They were usually observed in patient with acute lesions involving posterior areas, often accompanying and/or following clinical manifestations of status. Convulsive status with PLEDs was associated with a poor prognosis, because of underlying acute brain injury.
