Reuber M, Mitchel AJ, Howlett S, Elger CE, Measuring outcome in psychogenic nonepileptic seizure
: how relevant is seizure remission?
Une crise psychogene non epileptique (CPNE, ou PNES, Psychogenic NonEpileptic Seizure
) est une manifestation transitoire d'allure neurologique pouvant faire evoquer, a tort, le diagnostic de crise epileptique (Maillard, Hingray, Schwann & Vespignani, 2015).

The app was informative in 87% of cases (115 patients), and app results ultimately agreed with a physician's diagnosis of epileptic or nonepileptic seizure
in 97% of those cases (112 patients), according to Dr.
A spokesperson for the 24-year-old R 'n' B star told Us magazine that the singer, who suffered an nonepileptic seizure

CP = complex partial; DI = during interview; Gen = generalized; NES = nonepileptic seizure
; P2nd = partial seizure with secondary generalization; PI = postinterview; 2nd = secondary generalized; SP = simple partial; TC = tonic-clonic.
A comparative study of trauma and posttraumatic stress disorder prevalence in epilepsy patients and psychogenic nonepileptic seizure

Psychogenic nonepileptic seizures
: Ways to win over skeptical patients
First, older patients can have episodes that mimic seizures but are actually the result of syncope, a sleep disorder, or a psychiatric illness. Differentiating nonepileptic seizures
from epileptic seizures can be difficult.
Second, active epilepsy might be overestimated because of the mistaken reporting of other nonepileptic seizures
(5) or underestimated because of respondents' reluctance to disclose epilepsy (2), as well as by the exclusion of institutionalized adults (e.g., adults in long-term care facilities and incarcerated persons) from NHIS.
