PEREA C, Esther; TORRES Z, Martín  e  SUAREZ J, Martín. A case of Psychogenous Crisis, a Linking Psychiatric Pathology. rev.colomb.psiquiatr. [online]. 2012, vol.41, n.3, pp.680-689. ISSN 0034-7450.

Psychogenous seizures described by Charcot, are an entity that can be difficult to distinguish from epileptic seizures. 70% of these patients have an underlying psychiatric diagnosis. We describe the case of a female patient who was diagnosed with seizures for several years, poly-medicated, and included in the epilepsy surgery protocol for refractory patients. During the evaluation, a psychogenous origin was discovered for such crises. We analyzed the clinical criteria and laboratory tests that allow us to approach the differential diagnosis between both entities.

Palavras-chave : Psychogenic crisis; epileptic crisis; paroxystic non-epyleptic events; videoltelemetry; hysteria; mal events; somatomorphous disorder.
