He had been eminently successful in persuading the International League Against Epilepsy and the World Health Organization to create international classifications, first of epileptic seizures and then of the epilepsies, based upon his 18,000 clinical cases whose diagnoses were confirmed by 100,000 electroencephalographic tracings. Therefore, the task of writing a definitive textbook on epilepsy was assigned to Dr. Roger Broughton, based on Dr. Henri Gastaut's clinical material.
