Nonconvulsive status epileptics (NCSE) is one of the known complications of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). However, the incidence and predictors of NCSE after ICH are not well reported.

In this article, the authors aimed to report the frequency and predictors of NCSE in the nontraumatic ICH and to investigate the effect of NCSE on the functional outcome.

This study was a retrospective, single-center study of patients with nontraumatic ICH who were admitted within three days of symptoms onset. NCSE was defined based on the modified Salzburg Consensus Criteria. Lobar hemorrhage was defined as ICH in the frontal, parietal, temporal, occipital or insular lobe.
