Proposal for Revised Classification of Epilepsies and Epileptic Syndromes

  title={Proposal for Revised Classification of Epilepsies and Epileptic Syndromes},
  author={K. Yoshimura and F. Hamada and I. Nomura and T. Kurashige},
We reported results of a clinico-encephalographic study using proposal for classification of epilepsies and epileptic syndromes (1989 ILAE). Fifty-three patients belonged to localization-related epilepsies (LE) and syndromes; forty-one patients belonged to generalized epilepsies and syndromes (GE); one patient belonged to epilepsies and syndromes undetermined, focal or generalized; and we could not classify 4 patients. No patients with the onset after 2 years of age belonged to idiopathic LE… Expand
[Idiopathic generalised epilepsy. The value of semiology and EEG scanning in its classification].
The 2001 ILAE classification is more useful in order to classify patients with IGE because includes patients previously considered unclassifiable in the syndrome of generalised epilepsy with different phenotypes. Expand

Classification of Epilepsies and Epileptic Syndromes in Young Children
Of the patients with LE, 47 had idiopathic, 35 symptomatic and 8 patients cryptogenic LE, 2 had a clear-cut syndrome of benign childhood epilepsy with centro-temporal spikes and one Childhood epilepsy with occipital paroxysms. Expand
Neuroepidemiological Study of Childhood Epilepsy by Application of International Classification of Epilepsies and Epileptic Syndromes (ILAE, 1989)
Summary: A population‐based survey of childhood epilepsy was made in 1975 on the total population of children aged >10 years living in Okayama Prefecture (n = 2,378 patients). Using the dataExpand
Is the underlying cause of epilepsy a major prognostic factor for recurrence?
In adults, partial epilepsy is more difficult to treat than idiopathic generalized epilepsy, and in patients who have partial epilepsy, the location of the epileptogenic zone does not seem to be a determining factor. Expand
Outcomes in newly diagnosed localization-related epilepsies
A total of 558 patients with a range of localization-related epilepsy syndromes starting treatment in a single centre were followed over a period of up to 20 years, with 92% of whom remained in remission until the end of follow-up. Expand
Epidemiology of Idiopathic Generalized Epilepsies
IGEs are a relatively new category of disorders defined by strict clinical and electroencephalogram (EEG) features proposed by the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE) classification of epileptic syndromes, but many epidemiologic studies still confuse the cryptogenic and idiopathic groups.

Experience with the International League Against Epilepsy Classifications of Epileptic Seizures (1981) and Epilepsies and Epileptic Syndrome (1989) in Epileptic Children in a Developing Country
Despite various limitations, the ILAE classification can be used in developing countries so that comparison can be made with other studies, and most cases were able to be classified. Expand
West Syndrome and its Related Epileptic Syndromes
The electroclinical features of 45 patients who experienced spasms in series were investigated, as well as some features not common in patients with WS, and the nosological limits of WS are reconsidered. Expand
Clinical characteristics, seizure spread patterns and prognosis of seizures associated with a single small cerebral calcific CT lesion
Clinical characteristics of 97 patients with epilepsy associated with a small single cerebral calcific CT lesion, measuring 20 mm or less, were analysed and the clinical pattern of the seizures was clearly distinctive to allow it to be localized to the location of the lesion on computerized tomography scan.

Proposal for Revised Clinical and Electroencephalographic Classification of Epileptic Seizures
The history of the work which represents a milestone in efforts at classifying epileptic seizures and has led to world-wide adoption is related, and the majar portions of the version of the International Classification of Epileptic Seizures are proposed. Expand
