OBJECTIVE To analyze the frequency and pathogenetic factors of crossed cerebellar atrophy (CCA) in adult patients with epilepsy secondary to destructive brain insults of early development. METHODS We studied 51 adult patients with epilepsy and precocious destructive lesions. Patients were divided into 3 groups according to the topographic distribution of(More)
Fifty-one consecutive adult patients with epilepsy and early development destructive brain lesions were divided into three main groups according to the topographic distribution of the lesion on magnetic resonance imaging: hemispheric (H) (n=9); main arterial territory (AT) (n=25) and arterial borderzone (Bdz) (n=17). Eight (89%) patients from group H(More)
Acute cerebellitis is one of the main causes of acute cerebellar dysfunction in childhood and may be infectious, postinfectious, or postvaccination. The etiology of acute cerebellitis is usually viral. Varicella zoster, Epsten-Barr, rubeola, pertussis, diphtheria, and coxsackie viruses are the most frequently involved agents. Diagnosing of acute(More)
Unilateral destructive brain lesions of early development can result in compensatory thickening of the ipsilateral cranial vault. The aim of this study was to determine the frequency of these bone changes among patients with epilepsy and precocious destructive lesions, and whether a relationship exists between these changes and epileptiform discharges(More)
Destructive insults of early development can lead to a wide variety of lesional patterns and are a well known cause of epilepsy. The aim of this study is to present a topographic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) classification of these lesions in adult patients with epilepsy. Thirty-three consecutive patients were divided in three groups according to the(More)
