Report of super-refractory status epilepticus responsive to a novel therapy

Division members Drs. John Malta, Mauro Lodolo, and Suman Ghosh, in collaboration with Dr. Jonathan Greco from UF Jacksonville, published a report of a school-aged boy with super-refractory status epilepticus whose seizures responded to dexmedetomidine, which is not a standard anti-seizure medication.  This report indicates that the potential of this medication for the treatment of seizures should be investigated further.
