During working period of SVS Laboratory of epilepsy, convulsive diseases research and of family monitoring named after V.M.
Savinov 12500 patients was examined with directional diagnosis epilepsy. According to International standards the examination
included longitudinal video EEG monitoring, EEG with stress tests, detection anticonvulsant’s level in serum, MRI, CT, PET
etc. As a result in 12% cases the diagnosis epilepsy was changed into syncopes, hysterical attacks, sympathoadrenal crisises
etc. In article we demonstrate a case of continuous inadequate treatment of anticonvulsant’s without any efficiency due incomplete examination of patient. After detailed examination in SVS Laboratory of epilepsy, convulsive diseases research and
of family monitoring named after V.M. Savinov the diagnosis epilepsy was abolished. Macro –adenoma of suprarenal gland
was revealed which was the reason of non-epileptic paroxysms significantly impaired quality of life. This article demonstrates
a necessity in-depth study patients with latest medical techniques and a necessity of knowledges in allied medical trades.
