Clinical implications of the phenomenological overlap between movement disorders and epilepsy
Whilst video electroencephalography (vEEG) enhances differential diagnosis of movement disorders, this study emphasises the need for further diagnostic tools.
Why this matters
Current diagnostic criteria lack rigid guidelines and phenomenological classification, leading to misdiagnoses and incorrect treatment strategies. vEEG holds promise in differentiating focal motor seizures between various movement disorders.
