Overview

In 2017, the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE) classified seizures by their onsets as focal (aware/impaired awareness, motor, nonmotor, focal to tonic-clonic seizures), generalized (motor, nonmotor), and unknown (motor, nonmotor, and unclassified).

In 1981, the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE) classified epileptic seizures as partial seizures (simple partial seizures, complex partial seizures, and partial seizures evolving to secondarily generalized seizures), generalized seizures (absence seizures, myoclonic seizures, clonic seizures, tonic seizures, tonic-clonic seizures (grand mal), and atonic seizures), and unclassified epileptic seizures.
