Abstract

A 66-year-old woman with posttraumatic anoxic coma after diffuse cerebral fat embolism had continuous alternating-side myoclonic jerks. Usually, this kind of myoclonic status epilepticus (SE) occurs in newborn infants. We postulate the unusual combination of diffuse cerebral anoxia plus commissural fiber damage as a possible explanation.
