Abstract

Purpose: Status epilepticus (SE) is a highly common neurological disease in children, with recurrent generalized convulsions for more than 30 minutes, and when not controlled, neuronal damage occurs in the brain. The aim of this study was to evaluate the changes in KCNQ1 and KCNQ3 gene expression levels in the acute period after SE.
