Özet

Objectives: This study aimed to investigate the prevalence of psychogenic nonepileptic seizures (PNES) and PNESepilepsy coexistence within all video-electroencephalography (EEG) monitoring unit (VEMU) referrals and to identify semiological and electrophysiological features to differentiate patients with PNES-epilepsy coexistence from PNES-only.
