Evidence for developmental precursor lesions in epilepsy-associated glioneuronal tumors.

Abstract

The etiology and pathogenesis of epilepsy-associated local lesions remain largely unknown. Histopathologically, the most frequent lesions comprise gangliogliomas and glioneuronal malformations, i.e., hamartias or hamartomas, with a preferred location in the temporal lobe of young patients. A characteristic histopathological admixture of glial and neuronal… (More)
