Background Super-refractory status epilepticus (SRSE) is extremely difficult to control and associated with poor outcomes. Ketogenic diet (KD) has been increasingly used for SRSE treatment. Enteral ketosis induction in SRSE is sometimes unfeasible, leading to the use of parenteral KD which has limited data among children. Objectives To assess the effectiveness of KD and compare parenteral and enteral ketosis induction as treatment options in pediatric SRSE patients. Methods This study is a retrospective medical record review of children
