The definitive diagnosis of the type of epilepsy, if it exists, in medication-resistant seizure disorder is based on the efficient combination of clinical information, long-term video-electroencephalography (EEG) and neuroimaging. Diagnoses are reached by a consensus panel that combines these diverse modalities using clinical wisdom and experience. Here we(More)
OBJECTIVE Early and accurate diagnosis of patients with psychogenic nonepileptic seizures (PNES) leads to appropriate treatment and improves long-term seizure prognosis. However, this is complicated by the need to record seizures to make a definitive diagnosis. Suspicion for PNES can be raised through knowledge that patients with PNES have increased somatic(More)
PURPOSE The average delay from first seizure to diagnosis of psychogenic non-epileptic seizures (PNES) is over 7 years. The reason for this delay is not well understood. We hypothesized that a perceived decrease in seizure frequency after starting an anti-seizure medication (ASM) may contribute to longer delays, but the frequency of such a response has not(More)
