Can home videos made on smartphones complement Video-EEG in diagnosing Psychogenic Nonepileptic Seizures?

Psychogenic nonepileptic seizures (PNES) are episodic in nature, and many patients are initially misdiagnosed as having epilepsy. Most patients subsequently diagnosed with PNES in specialized centers are on antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) at the time of their referral. This has cost and added adverse effects of AEDs. Recognition of PNES can be difficult even for physicians. [1] Though certain clues in the semiology could suggest that the seizure is non-epileptic, the gold-standard for its diagnosis is the demonstration of a typical event without accompanying epileptiform discharges on Video- electroencephalographic (VEEG) evaluation.
