Psychogenic Nonepileptic "Seizures" or "Attacks"? It's Not Just Semantics: Attacks

Selim R Benbadis. Neurology.

Abstract

Since the phrase "psychogenic nonepileptic seizures" has been the term of choice, it has become clear that the word "seizure" here creates confusion. Beyond theoretical arguments, the confusion it creates is detrimental to patients' and families' understanding of the diagnosis, which in turn has a negative impact on treatment.
