Dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumor (DNT) frequently causes medically intractable epilepsy. The aim of this study was to investigate the basic mechanism of epileptogenecity of the tumor. Clinicopathological data in 13 cases of DNT and immunohistochemical changes of ionotropic glutamate receptor subunits in the tumor and peritumoral epileptogenic cortex were studied. Magnetic resonance imaging combined with electroencephalography (EEG), electrocorticography, and depth-electrode EEG was… CONTINUE READING
