Objective: The aim of this study was to compare both ILAE 2010 and semiological seizure classification (SSC) in terms of their applicability and utility and to predict epileptogenic zone in children with epilepsy. Methods: Both ILAE 2010 classification and SSC which is a part of five dimensional classification were applied for a total 138 children by dividing into younger (<= 6 y/o) and older (>6 y/o) age groups over the last two years as retrospectively. After the assessment of the seizures types, epilepsy syndromes, and etiologies; the data were also compared to evaluate if having correlation between epileptogenic zone and seizure subtypes in both ILAE 2010 and SSC.
