We documented psychogenic seizures in 50 of 79 patients referred for differentiation between psychogenic and epileptic seizures. Only 5 of these 50 had, in addition, EEG evidence for epilepsy. In patients with documented psychogenic seizures, a second diagnosis of epilepsy should not be made without definite EEG support.
