    Focal epilepsies include the most common epilepsy types in adults, and the role of EEG in the diagnosis and classification of these epilepsies is well established. In this chapter we provide an overview of non-age-related focal epilepsies classified according to localization criteria, that is, temporal, frontal, occipital, and parietal lobe epilepsies. The main clinical aspects and scalp EEG features, either interictal and ictal, and the yield of the EEG for the diagnosis of each of these groups are illustrated. In addition, the clinical and EEG characteristics of two other forms of non-age-related focal epilepsy such as epilepsy with gelastic seizures and Rasmussen’s syndrome are also described.
