Abstract

Adequate evaluation by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can reliably detect mesial temporal sclerosis (MTS). We report clinical, EEG and neuropsychological correlative data collected as a part of a comprehensive evaluation of children with epilepsy due to MTS nine patients were included in this study. A history of prolonged febrile convulsions (>30') was common to all patients, occurring in the first 18 months of life in most of them. The delay between febrile status and onset of late epilepsy varied from 4 months to 11 years. Complex partial seizures of temporal type were the predominant seizure type, but other seizure patterns such as absence seizures were seen. AEDs controlled seizures in all patients. In no patient seizures could be lateralized clinically. Correspondence between side of the lesion and EEG anomalies was found in 4 patients. A specific neuropsychological dysfunction can be demonstrated even when seizures are well controlled.
