  • Subependymal nodular heterotopia (SNH) is a cortical development malformation that is commonly associated with medically resistant epilepsy. Cases of SNH are challenging to treat surgically because there are typically multiple nodules, which may be involved in epileptogenesis. Moreover, dual pathology may exist in these patients. Here, we present a case with unilateral subependymal heterotopic nodules associated with ipsilateral hippocampal atrophy. Invasive and non-invasive work-ups revealed… CONTINUE READING
