Abstract: In the wake of the worldwide H1N1 pandemic, there has been evidence that the H1N1 influenza virus is associated with neurological complications. This is the first report describing status epilepticus in an adult patient with H1N1 virus infection, to our knowledge. This patient had no prior history of epilepsy and presented with complex partial status epilepticus. This was further illustrated on electroencephalographs and MRI brain changes that corresponded with the patient's clinical state and which subsequently resolved on follow-up. Although uncommon, H1N1 infections may result in central nervous system complications in adults and it is crucial to treat such patients with urgency. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
