Medically intractable temporal lobe seizures developed in 3 patients with radiological and clinical evidence of a gross focal cerebral lesion acquired early in life. All had bilateral independent epileptogenic discharges from the lateral and inferomesial regions of both hemispheres. Scalp and sphenoidal electroencephalographic (EEG) recordings suggested that the seizures originated from the side contralateral to the known cerebral lesion. Because the lateralizing evidence presented by the ictal… CONTINUE READING
