Nonepileptic seizures: Psychiatric aspects

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Nonepileptic seizures are events seen relatively commonly by neurologists in general and by epilepsy centers in particular. Once the diagnosis is made, etiology needs to be determined. One might think that etiology would easily lead to effective treatment, but this often is not the case. This article reviews the literature on the diagnosis and treatment of these disorders.
