To the Editor ,

I sincerely thank you for the comments. The entity of non-convulsive status is definitely pertinent in these cases. Due to logistic rea­sons, we could not get EEG done in the re­ported patients. Both the patients improved after coincidental stoppage of cefepime and change over to another antibiotic. This chro­nology of events made us think in the lines of cefepime-induced neurotoxicity. However, neither of the patients received anti-epileptic drugs or benzodiazepines and the dialysis schedule was continued as before. The dose of cefepime was 1 g/day in both the patients.
