Gadopentetate dimeglumine (gadolinium) is the most commonly used magnetic resonance imaging contrast medium. This medium has an excellent safety record, although it has been associated with occasional serious adverse events, including seizures. We present the first reported case of gadopentetate-induced status epilepticus, and discuss some of the possible risk factors for gadopentetate-associated reactions.
