Abstract

Postictal psychoses represent a considerable clinical challenge and are often unrecognized. In this review, the clinical features of the syndromes and the underlying biological foundations, as revealed through EEG and imaging studies, are discussed. It is concluded that although the syndrome can be well recognized, it is not acknowledged in standard diagnostic manuals, hence the relative neglect in the epilepsy literature.
