Abstract

A case is reported of a man, aged 67 years, in a toxi infectious condition resulting from gall bladder necrosis due to thrombosis of the cystic artery, who also suffered from secondary metabolic decompensation aggravated by pro existent renal failure, and who had three generalized convulsive attacks. A few hours later, the patient was limp, drowsy and somewhat confused; the EEG showed a slow dysrhythmia which responded only partially to sensitive sensory stimulation, and a right frontal irritation focus. Intravenous administration of diazepam induced clinical sleep and also caused the appearance of suppression bursts lasting 3 to 4 seconds and recurring every 8 minutes.
