Abstract Epilepsy is the most common serious neurological disorder affecting an estimated 50 million people worldwide. Particular focus should be placed on a safe diagnosis, seizure and syndrome classification, and choice of pharmacological and surgical options for a range of patient populations with different health-care requirements. Eight new antiepileptic drugs were licensed in the 1990s with more to come. These new drugs along with earlier resective surgery have led to a better outcome for many more people with this condition.
