The diagnosis of functional neurological disorder (FND) relies on the demonstration of positive symptoms and signs, as supported by recent changes in DSM5. We recorded the findings of routine clinical eye movement assessment in 101 consecutive new patients with FND. Clinical examination triggered facial and eye movement disorders in 46% of patients, all with positive characteristics of functional movement disorder. These are useful as supporting features in making a positive diagnosis of FND.
