In a large series of 116 cortical resections for treatment of medically intractable epilepsy, 10 glial hamartomas and 11 neuronoglial malformative lesions were found. Glial hamartomas were astrocytic in 3 cases, oligodendrocytic in 6 and mixed oligoastrocytic in 1. Neuronoglial lesions corresponded to “focal cortical dysplasia” in 6 patients and to “microdysgenesis” in 5 others. This study focuses on the various neuropathological presentations of these malformative epileptogenic lesions, and on… CONTINUE READING
