Topic: Non- Epileptic Paroxysmal Disorders 

Description: Non-epileptic events, also called paroxysmal non-epileptic disorders (PNED) are a series of events characterized by clinical elements that need to be clearly differentiated from epileptic seizures. They may appear at any age, although major incidence is in pediatric age, especially during the first years of life. In clinical practice, pediatricians are, not infrequent- ly, asked to diagnose such events, which could be misdiagnosed as epileptic seizures. A correct diagnosis will avoid useless investigations and unnecessary medication.
The diagnosis of PNED requires a careful history of the episodes and the conditions of their occurrence.
In this webinar we will focus on the more frequent PNEDs, on the semiology of events, and management during the follow-up.

Speaker: Professor Nicola Specchio, Head of Epilepsy Unit at Department of Neuroscience Bambino Gesù Children’s Hospital, IRCCS, Italy.
Chair: Professor Kevin Rostasy, EPNS Board Member, Head of Paediatric Neurology, Witten/Herdecke University, Children’s Hospital Datteln, Germany.
