ABSTRACTThe central nervous system ( CNS) complications and peripheral nervous system ( PNS) complications are common complications of sepsis. CNS complications include sepsis associated encephalopathy (SAE),septic-metastatic encephalitis (SME),and septic-embolic encephalitis (SEE). Of them,the SAE is the most common complication of CNS complications. PNS complications include critical illness polyneuropathy (CIP) and critical illness myopathy (CIM).

Sepsis related neurological complications are closely related to the mortality and prognosis of patients,so early recognition and timely intervention are important.
