Abstract

To analyze the yield of short-term outpatient EEG video monitoring, the authors reviewed data on all patients who underwent this procedure at their center. All patients were suspected of having psychogenic nonepileptic seizures (PNES) on clinical grounds. The total number of cases of short-term outpatient EEG video monitoring was 74. In 49 (66%) cases, the suspected diagnosis of PNES could be confirmed, thereby obviating the need for prolonged inpatient EEG video monitoring.
