Terminology and classification of the cortical dysplasias
Background: There have been difficulties in achieving a uniform terminology in the literature regarding issues of classification with respect to focal cortical dysplasias (FCDs) associated withExpand

Intrinsic epileptogenicity of human dysplastic cortex as suggested by corticography and surgical results
Cortical dysplastic lesions (CDyLs) are often associated with severe partial epilepsies. We describe the electrographic counterpart of this high degree of epileptogenicity, manifested by continuousExpand

Diffuse cortical dysplasia, or the 'double cortex' syndrome
Diffuse neuronal migration disorders associated with epilepsy can now be recognized by modern neuroimaging techniques, particularly high-resolution MRI. We report 10 patients with a recentlyExpand

The localizing value of auras in partial seizures
Doubts concerning the localizing significance of auras in partial seizures have recently been expressed. Prompted by this, we studied this issue by re-examining two groups of patients: the first,Expand

Classification issues in malformations caused by abnormalities of cortical development.
Malformations caused by abnormalities of cortical development (MCDs) as a group are now widely recognized as a key cause of medically refractory epilepsies, often leading to a consideration ofExpand

Focal neuronal migration disorders and intractable partial epilepsy: A study of 30 patients
We studied 30, patients with partial epilepsy and a radiological or pathological diagnosis of localized neuronal migration disorders, with a view to surgical treatment. Eight patients hadExpand

Resection of the lesion in patients with hypothalamic hamartomas and catastrophic epilepsy
BackgroundPatients with hypothalamic hamartomas (HH) often have severe refractory epilepsy, incapacitating behavioral abnormalities, and cognitive decline. Attempts to control the seizure disorder byExpand

Focal neuronal migration disorders and intractable partial epilepsy: Results of surgical treatment
Twenty‐six patients with focal or lateralized neuronal migration disorders and intractable partial epilepsy were treated surgically. Twenty‐four had reliable follow‐up ranging from 1 to 15 yearsExpand

Operative Strategies for Patients with Cortical Dysplastic Lesions and Intractable Epilepsy
Summary: Cortical dysplastic lesions (CDLs) are usually identified by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Clinical, electrographic and histologic findings suggest that focal CDLs (FCDLs) are highlyExpand

Cortical dysplasia
Human cortical dysplastic lesions are frequently associated with severe partial epilepsies. We report an immunocytochemical investigation on cortical tissue from three surgically treated patients,Expand
