Results. A total of 84 children; 44 with SE and 40 with non SE. Mortality and neurological sequelae was only found in SE group (38,6% and 25.9%). The mean LOS for survivor of SE with neurological sequelae and survivor of SE without neurological sequelae were 8.71 days and 11. 65 days, respectively.
