Inter looked to be on their way to a rare derby success with first half goals from Dejan Stankovic and Cristiano Zanetti, but Milan produced a brilliant second half fight back to take the spoils with goals from Jon Dahl Tomasson, Kaka and Seedorf.
Inter stunned the hosts by breaking the deadlock on 15 minutes with a bizarre goal from Stankovic as his whipped corner somehow flew through a crowded goalmouth to end up in the corner of the net.
Adriano struck the post for Inter with a powerful header on 38 minutes, but Alberto Zaccheroni's men doubled their lead two minutes later when Zanetti's shot deflected off Alessandro Costacurta to wrong-foot Dida in the Milan goal.
Adriano missed a glorious chance to add a third just after the restart when he blazed over with his weaker left foot when clear on goal.
Inter were left to rue that miss when substitute Tomasson netted from close-range after Francesco Toldo could only palm out Seedorf's shot into the path of the Danish striker.
Milan had their tails up and they drew level a minute with a fine individual goal from Brazilian sensation Kaka as he picked the ball just inside Inter's half before running unchallenged to drill an unstoppable shot into the bottom corner.
The game looked set to end all-square until Seedorf produced a moment of magic with a blistering shot from the edge of the area to sink his old club and send Milan eight points clear at the top of the table.
Parma boosted their European hopes with a somewhat fortuitous 2-1 win over Sampdoria at a rain-soaked Stadio Luigi Ferraris on Saturday evening with a Francesco Antonioli blunder paving the way for the victory.
The atrocious conditions made good football hard to come by and after a dour first half the game sprung into life in the second half.
Parma were gifted the lead just before the hour mark with Antonioli having a moment he will not want to remember.
The Samp keeper somehow let a simple shot from Alberto Gilardino squirm from his hands and through his legs to roll into the net to the embarrassment of the former Roma custodian.
Parma doubled their lead on 74 minutes with Australian midfielder Mark Bresciano swapped passes with Simone Barone before drilling a shot from the edge of the box in off the post.
Sampdoria fought back and gave themselves a lifeline eight minutes from time with substitute Antonio Floro Flores netting from close-range for his first goal for the club.
The hosts piled forward in the dying minutes in search of an equaliser and Cristiano Doni shaved the woodwork with a fine free kick before Sebastien Frey kept out Fabio Bazzani's header.
Deep into injury time Samp felt aggrieved when they had penalty appeals waved away by the referee after Fabio Bazzani went down in the box under a challenge from Daniele Bonera.
