Answer

Answer

Medical care should address the underlying cause of TWE. If in fact a metabolic, toxic, or drug-induced etiology is unequivocal, then treatment should specifically address this problem. If NCSE is suspected, then an evaluation of the patient clinical response after the administration of intravenous benzodiazepines should be considered.
