Entorhinal cortex atrophy in epilepsy patients exhibiting normal hippocampal volumes.

OBJECTIVE To determine whether MRI volumetric measurement of the entorhinal cortex could detect structural damage and lateralize the seizure focus in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy in whom no measurable hippocampal abnormalities were found. BACKGROUND A reduction in the volume of the entorhinal cortex ipsilateral to the seizure focus in patients… CONTINUE READING
