PURPOSE Rasmussen syndrome (RS) is a rare form of epilepsy characterized by progressive destruction of a single hemisphere. To characterize the profile of cortical involvement in RS, we studied the pathological changes in the cerebral cortex of 45 hemispherectomies performed at Johns Hopkins Hospital between 1985 and 2002. METHODS The patterns of pathologic changes and stages of cortical abnormalities were studied by histology and immunocytochemistry methods. The burden of pathology (BP) was… CONTINUE READING
