Abstract

SUDEP (sudden unexpected death of patients with epilepsy) is the most common seizure-related cause of death in epilepsy and usually occurs after convulsive seizures. It has been postulated that SUDEP is the result of respiratory arrest after a seizure although cardiac arrhythmias may also be responsible for a proportion of cases. We describe a case of SUDEP after epileptic seizure caused by acute myocardial ischemia documented by autopsy in a patient with limbic encephalitis.
