Propofol withdrawal seizures (or not)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Propofol is associated with abnormal motor events resembling seizures, the exact nature of these events remains to be elucidated. We describe here a case of seizure-like activity after propofol-induced conscious sedation accompanied by a prolactin rise, together suggesting that the event was ictal.
