Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Among 350 referrals to a neurology service, 19 (5%) had panic attacks manifesting as focal neurologic symptoms. Diagnostic clues included multiple symptoms, normal results on neurologic examination, personal stress, dietary extremes, age 20-50 years, and symptom reproduction by hyperventilation. Focal neurologic symptoms should not exclude a diagnosis of panic attack.
