Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome is a well-recognized malformation syndrome with multiple congenital anomalies, resulting from partial deletion of the short arm of chromosome 4 (4p-). All affected individuals have intrauterine and postnatal growth retardation with marked feeding difficulties, developmental delay, and intellectual disability. Additionally, most of patients have seizures from early infancy. Although seizures are common with this syndrome, presenting with status epilepticus (SE) is rare. We report two cases of Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome presenting with SE.
