PURPOSE Two subtypes of temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) can be defined through clinical observations and analysis of hippocampal tissue resected during surgical procedures for intractable TLE: (a) mesial temporal sclerosis (MTS), which is characterized by extensive changes to the hippocampus and good surgical outcome; and (b) paradoxical temporal lobe epilepsy (PTLE), which is characterized by minimal cell loss and comparatively poorer surgical outcome. Patients in both subtypes have seizures that… CONTINUE READING
