This systematic review provides an assessment of the excited delirium syndrome (ExDS), including definition, epidemiology, pathophysiology and management. 66 relevant articles were included with significant heterogeneity of selected studies and poor overall quality. A quantitative meta-analysis could not be performed because there remains no clear definition for ExDS, however, this study does provide useful information regarding epidemiology, pathophysiology and treatment of ExDS.
