Abstract

We report on three women and a review of the literature on absence status epilepticus over the age of 50 years. Our aim was to characterize the male-female ratio in this condition. Out of 16 studies on absence status epilepticus over the age of 50, including our cases, a female dominance was found in 15. We found altogether, 104 (71 %) females and 42 (29%) males. This gender difference is highly significant (p <0.00001). We conclude that absence status epilepticus over the age of 50 is predominantly a female disorder.
