Abstract

We present the clinical features and long-lasting prognosis of epilepsy in a series of 8 patients with Subcortical Heterotopia. "Clinico-radiologic dissociation" was a distinctive feature: patients with normal intelligence and usually drug-responsive seizures opposed to imaging findings characterized by "giant" and heterotopic vast islands of gray matter. The relatively benign course of epilepsy is supported by a long-lasting follow-up (mean 17 years from epilepsy onset).
