Abstract: A 33-year-old man developed a generalized tonic-clonic seizure after a week of fever and fatigue. Diffusion weighted and fluid attenuated inversion recovery magnetic resonance imaging showed a hyperintense lesion in the splenium of the corpus callosum, and the lesion disappeared within a few days. The patient developed refractory status epilepticus despite treatment with multiple antiepileptic drugs. After concurrent administration of high-dose methylprednisolone, intravenous immunoglobulin, intravenous anesthetics and antiepileptic drugs, the patient achieved complete suppression of seizures. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of a new-onset refractory status epilepticus with a reversible splenial lesion.
