Author information

  • 1Department of Neurology, Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, Leeds, UK.


While the diagnostic features of psychogenic non-epileptic seizures have been better characterized in recent years, comparatively little is written about management. This review provides guidance to clinicians involved in the treatment of patients with psychogenic non-epileptic seizures and generates ideas for future research. It summarizes the recent literature specifically dealing with the treatment of such seizures and draws on the wider psychiatric literature on effective treatments for patients with other medically unexplained symptoms.
