The aim of this paper is to promote the correct classification of, and provide guidelines on, the diagnosis and management of panayiotopoulos syndrome (ps). an international consortium of established researchers in the field collaborated to produce a consensus document. the resulting document defines ps, characterizes its electro-clinical features, considers its likely pathogenesis, and provides guidance on appropriate management. we conclude that ps is a common idiopathic, benign seizure disorder of childhood, which should be classified as an autonomic epilepsy, rather than an occipital epilepsy.
