Learning outcomes

The seizures and the epilepsies

Classification of seizures and epilepsy is one of the first steps when approaching a case of epilepsy. It is also important in establishing the diagnosis, offering therapeutic options and defining the prognosis. The revised concepts, terminology, and approaches for classifying seizures and forms of epilepsy are obviously based on recent clinical, neurophysiological , genetic , technologic and scientific advances. The purpose of the ILAE classification is primarly for clinical use to assist in patient care; a secondary purpose is for research. Concepts have changed in the current recommandations where focal seizures are assumed to originate in networks limited to one cerebral hemisphere which may be discretely localized or more widely distributed. Generalized seizures are conceptualized to originate at some point within , and rapidly engaging , bilaterally distributed networks, involving cortical and subcortical structures , but not necessarily the entire cortex. The last proposed approach of ILAE may serve as the basis for organizing knowledge about recognized forms of epilepsy and facilitate identification of new forms.
