Abstract

Epilepsia partialis continua (EPC) type II is described in inflammatory lesions as chronic localized encephalitis. It is a progressive illness with paretic involvement of the clonic limbs and deterioration. We describe 2 children with EPC type II due to dysplasic cortical multifocal lesions. In one child hemispherectomy was performed with very good results, and the histological response confirmed the dysplasic lesion. We discuss the necessity of a correct etiological diagnosis for precocious neurosurgery which seems to be the only efficient therapy.
