Interpretation of Serum Valproate Level in Complicated Patient: A Case Report


Mohammad Reza Rafati and Ehsan Yousefi Mazhin*

Valproate is an antiepileptic drug which is commonly used for the treatment of focal and/or generalized epilepsy and mood disorders. We have reported a case of 10-years-old, 30 kg boy was admitted in the pediatric intensive care unit due to status epilepticus and then was received some antiepileptic drugs including valproate. Almost two weeks after starting valproate, the total serum level of valproate was measured that was very low. We investigated the cause of low valproate levels in this patient.
