Definition & Classification

Your comments are needed on proposed syndrome definitions

1 July, 2021

The ILAE seeks your comments on four papers prepared by the Task Force on Nosology and Definitions that provide the definitions for the many epilepsy syndromes at various ages. These papers summarize diagnostic electroclinical criteria as well as provide information about expected results of other investigations (imaging, genetics), frequent co-morbidities, and natural history. These definitions will become the League’s formal positions on these syndromes once edited and approved. Deadline for comment is July 15.

Proposed classification: Syndromes in Neonates and Infants

Proposed classification: Syndromes in Children

Proposed classification: Syndromes with onset at variable ages

Proposed classification: Idiopathic Generalized Epilepsies
