Hippocampal sclerosis (HS) is one of the most common pathologies in medically intractable temporal lobe intractable epilepsy. Significant hippocampal volume loss has also been found in patients with chronic depression. Depression is common in chronic epilepsy populations, but the effects of this comorbidity on hippocampal volume are unknown. We examined the hippocampal volumes of 87 patients (n=31 right hippocampal sclerosis, RHS; n=56 left hippocampal sclerosis, LHS). Each subject completed… CONTINUE READING
