Abstract

The diagnosis and management of psychogenic nonepileptic seizures (PNES) are among the most challenging tasks that neurologists face in their daily practice. PNES are abrupt, transitory, paroxysmal episodes which resemble an epileptic seizure, but are not caused by epileptiform activity. Thus, they lack the typical ictal electrophysiologic changes that accompany an epileptic seizure, and are commonly believed to have psychogenic process(es) as causative factor(s) [1].
