Propofol-induced seizure-like phenomena (SLP) is well described following anesthesia or sedation with this drug. The episode is usually benign and responds well to standards anti-convulsant therapy. The occurrence of status epilepticus refractory to conventional treatment and successful treatment with intravenous Calcium has been rarely reported. We describe a patient who developed status epilepticus refractory to standard treatment during recovery from Propofol anesthesia and successfully treated with intravenous calcium. The report highlights a potentially harmful complication of the Propofol and suggests that intra-venous calcium may be effective as an anticonvulsant treatment for Propofol-induced status epilepticus.
