The Management of Epilepsy in Children and Adults
This review describes the new International League Against Epilepsy classiﬁcation of seizure types and epilepsies, which has been updated to reﬂect the major advances in the understanding of the biology of seizure disorders.
It also discusses the management of epilepsy in children and adults, highlighting recent advances. To provide an evidence-based review, the MJA searched PubMed for original and review articles, as well as specialist society guidelines up to 31 August 2017. They also identiﬁed relevant publications from the reference lists of retrieved articles and their ﬁles.
