We evaluated the ictal symptoms and psychological features (by DSM-IV diagnoses and CBA Scales) in two groups of patients with non-epileptic psychogenic seizures (PNES), with or without epilepsy (E). Autonomic symptoms were significantly more frequent among the patients with PNES without E. Somatoform Disorders were the prevalent diagnosis in both groups. The scores of CBA 'Psychophysiological Distress' scale were higher in the PNES patients than in the epilepsy patients of the control groups.
