Two subtypes ("mesial" and "lateral") of temporal lobe epilepsy, according to the structures initially involved during seizures, are currently recognized on the basis of electroclinical seizure semiology, neuroradiological findings and pathology. This distinction is important in presurgical evaluation in order to define the Epileptogenic Zone. We analyzed the morphology and the localizing value of scalp-recorded Localized Subclinical Ictal Discharges (LOSID) in 30 patients affected by temporal lobe epilepsy who underwent epilepsy surgery. Two LOSID patterns, respectively highly correlated with "mesial" and "lateral" temporal lobe epilepsy, were recognized.
