Ictogenesis and symptomatogenesis of gelastic seizures in hypothalamic hamartomas: an ictal SPECT study.


PURPOSE To topographically localize the ictogenic zone within hypothalamic hamartomas (HHs) and the symptomatogenic zone for gelastic seizure (GS), we analyzed data from both interictal and ictal single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). METHODS Ictal SPECT was performed immediately after GS onset in 21 patients with HH (aged 2-36 years, mean 13… (More)
