Resumen

Las pseudocrisis epilépticas (fenómenos convulsivos de origen psicógeno y no epiléptico) son un motivo relativamente frecuente de interconsulta en psiquiatría. Cuando están ausentes los indicios que pudieran orientar a una etiología psicógena (desencadenantes vitales, personalidad de base, teatralidad de la presentación clínica…), suponen con frecuencia un autentico reto diagnóstico. El diagnóstico debe basarse no sólo en la ausencia de hallazgos en las diferentes exploraciones físicas efectuadas, sino también en la presencia de alteraciones psicopatológicas que confirmen el diagnóstico psiquiátrico. El abordaje inicial y la relación que se establezca con el niño y su familia son de extraordinaria importancia en la evolución posterior.
