Abstract

Objectives: None of the classifications of psychogenic non-epileptic seizures (PNES) have been widely accepted and used by physicians so far. In this study we aimed at classifying PNES on the basis of a modified version of semiological seizure classification (SSC). We also sought to assess the interrater reliability (IRR) of the PNES diagnosis based on SSC.
