Abstract

The distinction between hysterical and organically determined epileptic seizures may be more difficult than is sometimes supposed, and misdiagnosis can have dire consequences. Hysterical seizures may on occasions present as life-threatening crises requiring urgent and intensive treatment. Three such cases, each of which received the diagnosis of status epilepticus, are reported, and their management is discussed.
