Eating seizures

Umberto Aguglia, Paolo Tinuper

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Three personal observations of ‘eating seizures’ are described and similar cases in the literature considered. The authors conclude that eating seizures represent an unusual pathological event with complex physiopathological mechanisms, and prognosis may change in relation to the different clinical contexts. The role of intermittent prophylactic treatment with clobazam is discussed.
