          Abstract

          Nonconvulsive status epilepticus (NCSE) in the elderly is particularly difficult to diagnose, mainly due to subtle clinical manifestations and associated comorbidities. The recently validated electroencephalography (EEG) diagnostic criteria for NCSE and the proposed operational classification of status epilepticus provide tools that can allow an earlier diagnosis and better management of NCSE in this age group, possibly contributing to reduce its high mortality.
