    a single patient observation is not some thing you can trust . to be honest I do not know why it was even published .

    Perhaps because they are intolerant of MCS being dismissed as somatic symptoms disorder (SSD). ;)

    The med helped because the patient was having seizures. It was an anti-seizure medication. It suppressed the seizures. It didn't cure the MCS.

    As far as these statements:

    MCS has a known etiology and there is effective treatment. Clinicians who think SSD is an appropriate diagnostic category are uniformed.

    The medication was prescribed because she was having seizures, it was noticed that it also relieved her MCS.

    I love that typo. :D Uniformed, uniform, that is the problem. For such a dangerous idea, change is all too slow.
