PURPOSE A strong relation exists between lateralization of seizure onset in temporal-lobe epilepsy and atrophic mesial structures measured by volumetric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). We examined whether this relation extended to subregions of the mesial temporal lobe and whether the trend for seizures to spread contralaterally could be related to the localization of atrophy. METHODS We analyzed 362 seizures (with and without clinical signs) from 23 patients having bitemporal epilepsy in… CONTINUE READING
