Abstract

Non-Epileptic Paroxysmal States in Epilepsy

Anna Voitiuk, T. Litovchenko, Т. Markova

Differential diagnosis of epileptic and non-epileptic paroxysmal disorders is one of the most difficult diagnostic problems in Epileptology. A frequent combination of epileptic and non-epileptic seizures in a patient makes the diagnosis particularly difficult. As a rule, 30% of patients with verified epilepsy have non-epileptic seizures as well (both psychogenic and organic ones). Non-epileptic paroxysmal events may mimic epilepsy. The duration, place, timing of the attacks, and state of conciousness may confuse pediatricians about the diagnosis of epilepsy and non epileptic paroxysmal events.
