We performed proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy of the mesial temporal regions in 20 children with intractable temporal lobe epilepsy and compared results with those from 13 normal subjects. Abnormalities of the ratio of N-acetylaspartate to choline plus creatine (NAA/[Cho+Cr]) were seen in 15 patients (75%). The ratio NAA/(Cho+Cr) was correctly lateralizing in 55% and incorrectly lateralizing in none. Bilateral abnormalities were seen in 45%. Overall there was a unilateral decrease in N… CONTINUE READING
