Abstract

Ictal and postictal panic and interictal and primary panic attacks share common symptoms but differ with respect to duration and association with other symptoms. Acareful history is often sufficient to distinguish these events. When necessary, electroencephalography and neuroimaging studies, estimation of prolactin levels can be a helpful tool in establishing an accurate diagnosis.
