Refractory status epilepticus (RSE) in children is associated with a significant risk of death or neurological morbidity. Recently attention has been drawn to the ketogenic diet (KD) as an acute treatment, as it has shown promise in controlling seizures in otherwise refractory status epilepticus in several cases. We have listed these and reviewed all cases of KD used in RSE at our centre. KD was given as 4:1 fat:carbohydrate-protein solution.
