  • Rasmussen’s encephalitis (RE) is neurological disorder of childhood characterized by uni-hemispheric inflammation, intractable focal epilepsy and progressive cognitive and neurological deficits. Currently, hemispherectomy is the only effective method to control the seizures associated with RE. Although this disease has been heavily investigated, the pathogenesis of RE with unilateral cortex atrophy and focal seizure is still enigmatic. Neuropathological and immunological studies support the… CONTINUE READING
