Abstract

Similarities in the clinical presentation of panic disorder and temporal lobe epilepsy suggest that the two disorders are related and can lead to difficulties in a differential diagnosis. We describe the case of a young girlsuffering from paroxysmal anxiety, derealization-depersonalization and autonomic symptoms, lasting from seconds to several minutes; these episodes were very frequent and disabling. The interictal EEGs and MRI were normal. After having diagnosed panic disorder based mainly on the duration of the attacks and the family history, a pharmacological treatment was started.
