Coexistence of cortical dysplasias (CD) with cavernomas has rarely been reported. We reviewed our surgical specimens from patients who underwent surgery for pharmacoresistant epilepsy between 2003 and 2008, and identified seven cases with cavernoma, of whom two had overlying CD. In addition, each of these patients had a third form of a potentially epileptogenic lesion: hippocampal sclerosis in one, and venous angioma in the other. We conclude that CD is heterogeneous, with milder forms… CONTINUE READING
