Abstract

It is a significant challenge for the clinician to make distinction between nocturnal epilepsy form non-epileptic sleep disorders. Although in some patients, diagnosis is easy to achieve but sometimes not. At times even with help of polysomnogram and electroencephalogram, diagnostic confusion remains. We present two cases of nocturnal paroaxysmal events, which still need elucidate diagnosis.
