Abstract

Status epilepticus is a life-threatening disorder whose early recognition is essential. Non-epileptic seizures (pseudoseizures, hysterical seizures) may be confused with true epileptic seizures presenting a diagnostic dilemma which can result in inappropriate, expensive and potentially harmful treatment. We describe a male patient with no prior history of epilepsy who presented with status epilepticus and developed multiple types of non-epileptic seizures during his hospital stay.
