Arch Neurol. 1993 Oct;50(10):1059-60. doi: 10.1001/archneur.1993.00540100054014.


Weeping is an extremely rare ictal phenomenon. We report weeping during or at the very end of electrographically proved pseudoseizures in 10 patients. We conclude that weeping is a relatively common and specific clinical feature of pseudoepileptic seizures.
