PURPOSE The epilepsy associated with hypothalamic hamartomas (HHs) has typical clinical, electrophysiologic, and behavioral manifestations refractory to drug therapy and with unfavorable evolution. It is well known that only sessile lesions produce epilepsy, but no correlation has been established between the different types of sessile hamartomas and the(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Within the spectrum of reversible neuroimaging abnormalities induced by status epilepticus (SE) tumor-like lesions (TLL) have been rarely described. Their etiology, pathophysiology, and long-term outcome remain uncertain. These issues could be clarified by long-term magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies in TLL induced by presenting(More)
A Degenerescência Olivar Hipertrófica é uma forma de degenerescência transneuronal, resultante de lesões localizadas na via dentato-rubro-olivar. Envolve o núcleo olivar inferior e distingue-se das restantes formas de degenerescência pelo facto de se associar a hipertrofia da estrutura envolvida. Os autores fazem uma retropestiva dos aspectos imagiológicos(More)
Several lines of evidence suggest that hippocampal sclerosis in temporal lobe epilepsy is asymmetrically bilateral. The factors underlying such asymmetrical damage are relatively unexplored. This study correlates the asymmetry index of damage from hippocampal volumetry, relaxometry and NAA/(Cho+Cre) ratio with the duration of epilepsy. Results showed(More)
