Abstract

Psychogenic nonepileptic seizures (PNES) mimic epileptic seizures with attacks of changes in voluntary movement or sensory function. Psychiatric management including psychoeducation and psychotherapy is the recommended care.

Pediatric onset PNES can be challenging to recognize in both the pediatric and psychiatric setting. A thorough examination with focus on the patient history, clinical information and semiology to support the electroencephalographic testing is recommended. Nevertheless, limited knowledge exists on the clinical characteristics of pediatric onset PNES, as prior studies have been conducted on adult populations or small samples of children.
