Abstract

Status epilepticus is one of the important neurological emergencies due to the high rates of morbidity, mortality and workforce loss it causes. Status epilepticus is a condition that needs to be recognized and treated quickly because it is both life-threatening and causes serious sequelae.

In this case report, a forty-one-year-old female patient with a history of epilepsy is presented. She had eight generalized tonic-clonic seizures within seven hours. At the time of admission, the patient's creatinine kinase level was measured as 11434 U/L. Creatinine kinase level decreased with hydration therapy. No acute kidney injury occurred.

As a result, patients with status epilepticus are accompanied by muscle damage. Especially patients at risk for acute kidney injury should be closely monitored for creatinine kinase and urine output.
