Urinary incontinence may occur both in epileptic seizures (ES) and in non-epileptic events (NEE) such as psychogenic nonepileptic events (PNEEs) and syncope. A comprehensive search of the literature to determine the accuracy of this physical finding and its prevalence in epileptic seizures and syncope is still lacking. To undertake a systematic review to determine sensitivity, specificity and likelihood ratios (LR) of urinary incontinence in the differential diagnosis between ES and NEEs (including syncope and PNEEs).
