To define the determinants of impaired facial emotion recognition (FER) in patients with mesial temporal lobe epilepsy associated with hippocampal sclerosis (MTLE-HS), we examined 76 patients with unilateral MTLE-HS, 36 prior to antero-mesial temporal lobectomy (AMTL) and 40 after AMTL, and 28 healthy control subjects with a FER test consisting of 60 items(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the utility of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose Positron Emission Tomography (FDG PET) in helping decision making for epilepsy surgery. METHODS All patients with medically refractory focal epilepsy and MRI that was normal or discordant with clinical and EEG data underwent FDG PET. FDG PET scans were reported by two investigators blinded to(More)
Wide variability in patient selection, extent of callosal section and definition of successful outcome between studies make impact of corpus callosotomy on patients with medically refractory epilepsies difficult to interpret. Severe mental retardation is considered to be predictive of unfavorable seizure outcome after callosotomy. Very little attention has(More)
In areas where cysticercosis is endemic, calcified neurocysticercosis lesion(s) (CNL) and hippocampal sclerosis (HS) commonly coexist in patients with localization-related epilepsies. To understand the pathogenesis of HS associated with CNL, we compared the characteristics of three groups of patients with antiepileptic drug-resistant epilepsies: CNL with(More)
The prognostic significance of interictal epileptiform discharges (IED) after epilepsy surgery is uncertain. We reviewed 20 studies (including 2 unpublished data sets) to assess the usefulness of postoperative EEG findings in predicting seizure outcome after resective epilepsy surgery. Patient selection and methodology varied widely among the studies. The(More)
Chaturbhuj Rathore, MD Ashalatha Radhakrishnan, MD S. Dinesh Nayak, MD Kurupath Radhakrishnan, MD, FAAN A 6-year-old boy presented with seizures since the age of 3 years characterized by sudden extension of the upper extremities and a tendency to fall forward; each seizure was induced by micturition. The ictal EEG during these seizures showed 20 Hz beta(More)
Epilepsy surgery is a well-accepted treatment for drug-resistant epilepsy. The success of the epilepsy surgery depends upon an appropriate presurgical evaluation process which should ensure the selection of suitable patients who are likely to become seizure-free following surgery without any unacceptable deficit. The two basic goals of the presurgical(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the usefulness of the Wada test for predicting seizure outcome following anterior temporal lobectomy (ATL). METHODS From 1996 to 2002, all patients with left mesial temporal lobe epilepsy and hippocampal sclerosis (MTLE-HS) and selected patients with right MTLE-HS underwent the Wada test before ATL at our center. Patients were selected(More)
BACKGROUND Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) has been described in association with various primary headache disorders. So far, no case of TN has been reported in association with hemicrania continua (HC). CASE REPORT Here, we report two patients of hemicrania continua associated with TN (HC-tic syndrome). These patients had both headaches concurrently. Both(More)
