We describe a neurologically and developmentally normal child with infrequent seizures characterized by emetic symptoms and other autonomic phenomena and interictal spikes that satisfy the diagnostic criteria of Panayiotopoulos syndrome (PS). Two video/EEG recordings, taken a year apart, revealed prolonged autonomic seizures and other subtle behavioral changes, suggesting that episodes of nonconvulsive status epilepticus in PS may be more frequent than appreciated.
