Status epilepticus in pregnancy - Can we frame a uniform treatment protocol?

CONCLUSION: Management of SE in pregnancy is influenced by etiology of SE and duration of pregnancy. It carries a good prognosis if detected early and treated appropriately. Large-scale multicentric studies are warranted for formulating definite guidelines for management of SE in pregnancy.

Authors: Wan Ab Rahman WS, Abdullah WZ, Husin A, Nik Mohd Hassan NFF, Hassan MN, Zulkafli Z Abstract INTRODUCTION: Acquired haemophilia A (AHA) is a rare acquired bleeding disorder caused by polyclonal immunoglobulin G autoantibodies against clotting factor VIII (FVIII). The incidence was reported to be rare occurring in 0.2- 4 cases/million/year. Patients may present with different clinical manifestations to various specialties. Early recognition of the disease contributes to favourable clinical outcome. CASE SERIES: Here, we reported five cases of this disorder with different clinical presentations from two t...

We report a case of splenic trauma during the third trimester of pregnancy that was successfully treated by arterial embolization with preservation of the spleen. This rarely reported management strategy during pregnancy had a favorable outcome. Such a strategy should be discussed and considered, taking into account maternal, obstetrical and fetal factors.

ConclusionsEndoscopic imaging of the venous system has great potential to improve access and to guide endovenous interventions. Chronic venous occlusion in post-thrombotic syndrome is a fibrotic process, and chronic venous fibrosis is a better description of the type of occlusion and should replace chronic venous thrombosis.

Conclusion In any patient presenting with SE occurring in pregnancy, though eclampsia is presumed to be the most common overall cause; it is relevant to consider other etiologies such as posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome, cortical venous thrombosis, and autoimmune encephalitis especially in cases presenting with refractory SE. Posterior reversible encephalopathy may occur in pregnancy due to diverse etiologies other than eclampsia.

Conclusions Pregnancy-associated SE is rare and predominantly occurs in patients without a history of epilepsy. An autoimmune etiology should be considered in pregnant patients with de novo SE, which was associated with poor outcomes. Thorough investigations and prompt treatment according to the etiology may be required to improve the final outcomes of both mother and fetus.
