  author={Di{\'e}ter Janz and R Dreyer and Antonio V. Delgado Escueta and Peter E. Kellaway and Jean Bancaud and M Seino and Olaf A. Henriksen},
In 1969, the International League Against Epilepsy published a scheme for classification of epileptic seizures. Professor H. Gastaut, then Secretary-General of ILAE and a member of the Commission an Classification, related the history of the work which represents a milestone in efforts at classifying epileptic seizures and has led to world-wide adoption (Gastaut, 1970). Since the publication of the 1969 classification, objective and sophisticated methods for studying epileptic seizures have… Expand

Classification of Epileptic Disorders
The article by Andermann and Berkovic in this issue puts forth the argument for inclusion of a single syndrome of juvenile idiopathic generalized epilepsies with multiple phenotypes in the new classification of epileptic disorders. Expand
Proposal for revised classification of epilepsies and epileptic syndromes. Commission on Classification and Terminology of the International League Against Epilepsy.
The present ICE represents a consensus statement compatible with the view of the majority of international epileptologists and believed to be suitable for mutual exchange of ideas. Expand
[Another seizure classification--Semiological Seizure Classification].
The original guideline, which has been used at The Cleveland Clinic Foundation for years, is presented to introduce another method of epileptic seizure classification. Expand
Classifications of the International League Against Epilepsy: Time for Reappraisal
An International League Against Epilepsy task force has evaluated the need for revising the current classification and terminology and has begun developing four specific documents, including a classification of epileptic seizures based on known or presumed pathophysiological and anatomic substrates.

A Proposed Diagnostic Scheme for People with Epileptic Seizures and with Epilepsy: Report of the ILAE Task Force on Classification and Terminology
A diagnostic scheme that makes use of standardized terminology and concepts to describe individual patients is proposed, and a variety of approaches to classification are possible, and some are presented here by way of example only. Expand
Considerations in the Classification of Epilepsies and Epileptic Syndromes
This symposium will address five problems of epilepsy and contribute to the future revision of the classification by promoting a better understanding of it, pointing out the problems, and searching for their solution. Expand
The ILAE classification of seizures and epilepsies: implications for the clinic
This ILAE classification scheme, the latest of a series of proposals published in the last 30 years, has made progress as it has a multi-level structure allowing for differing uses and combines the previously separate seizure types and epilepsies schemes into a single instrument. Expand
Basics of modern epilepsy classification and terminology.
Adopting a classification system that uses plain language allows for more effective and efficient communication between individuals and across specialties. Expand

This supplement, comprising the proceedings of the Ninth Annual Memtt-Putnam Symposium, focuses on the genetic, diagnostic, and therapeutic aspects of the epileptic syndromes. During the last decade,Expand
A semiological classification of status epilepticus.
The SCSE reflects the assumption implied by all modern definitions of SE that "there are as many types of status as there are types of seizures" and relies on the same principles as the SSC, focusing on the main clinical manifestations and the evolution of the status episode. Expand


Clinical and Electroencephalographical Classification of Epileptic Seizures
The proposed scheme of classification was presented in Vienna on 5 September 1965, at a joint meeting of the 8th International Neurological Congress and the Quadrennial Reunion of the ILAE, and avoided, so far as possible, both neologisms and too new or outrageous points of view. Expand
