OBJECTIVE To determine the occurrence of magnetic resonance imaging-detected hippocampal atrophy (HA) in patients with partial epilepsy (temporal and extratemporal, cryptogenic, or symptomatic). Magnetic resonance imaging-detected HA has been demonstrated to be both sensitive and specific for hippocampal sclerosis in cryptogenic temporal lobe epilepsy. DESIGN Patients' hippocampal formations were measured on a computerized system using T1-weighted, 5-mm contiguous magnetic resonance coronal… CONTINUE READING
