We report two patients of generalized nonconvulsive status epilepticus (GNSE) accompanied by end-stage renal dis-ease. Both patients were presented with impaired responsiveness and behavioral abnormalities. Continuous generalized epileptiform discharges were noted on EEG. GNSEs of our patients were responsive to benzodiazepines clinically and electroencephalographically. And they were controlled by short-term antiepileptic treatment and improvement of ure-mic condition.
