The International League Against Epilepsy recently published an updated classification that better reflects our understanding of epilepsies and their mechanisms.1 This chapter discusses specific epilepsy syndromes, epilepsies that are not associated with a specific age of onset, reflex epilepsies, and the main etiologic groups described in the updated classification, including structural, genetic, infectious, metabolic, and immune mediated.
