Our knowledge on epileptic spasms and West syndrome is always in progress. Its wide variability concerning clinical semiology, EEG patterns and neurodevelopment is related to heterogeneous aetiologies and is believed to considerably influence diagnostic procedures and treatment selection. This contrasts with the general tendency to consider the pathogenic mechanism underlying infantile spasms as unique.

This book includes several contributions to a recent international workshop gathering up-to-date knowledge on electro-graphic and seizure semiology, neurodevelopment, surgical and medical treatment in West syndrome.
