Other status syndromes: West syndrome, the neonatal and childhood status syndromes, epilepsia partialis continua, simple partial status, and absence status in the elderly are rare, and can contribute to the annual incidence of status no more than 5-10 cases per 1 000 000 persons in the general population (at a conservative and approximate estimate). The boundary syndromes have not been included in these calculations, but are relatively common.

13% of all casualty visits; Pilke, Partinen & Kovanen 1984). Status epilepticus as a proportion of all epileptic cases Turner's (1907) estimate that a history of status had occurred in about 5% of his clinic cases was roughly confirmed by subsequent studies, at least until recent times. 3% (27 of 1166) of patients of whom about half were over 40 years.

Frequency of status epilepticus If one cannot easily define a condition or indeed satisfactorily classify it, clearly any estimate of its frequency must be of doubtful validity; this is the position with status.

Hunter (1959/60) contrasted the increasingly frequent references to status in the second half of the nineteenth century with the paucity of earlier reports, and inferred that the condition became common only with the appearance of effective antiepileptic drugs (bromides).
