Abstract

We report two patients who developed focal abnormalities on MRI after partial status epilepticus. Maximum radiological modification occurred in the area of maximal epileptic discharge. Subsequent MRI failed to demonstrate persistent abnormalities. These transient abnormalities on MRI could be an expression of cerebral edema caused by focal epileptic status.
