Mirror focus in a patient with intractable occipital lobe epilepsy.

Mirror focus is one of the evidence of progression in epilepsy, and also has practical points for curative resective epilepsy surgery. The mirror foci...

Metabolic changes in occipital lobe epilepsy with automatisms.
Some studies suggest that the pattern of glucose hypometabolism relates not only to the ictal-onset zone but also reflects seizure propagation. We investigated metabolic changes in patients with occipital lobe epilepsy (OLE) that may reflect propagat

Insulinoma presenting as medically intractable temporal lobe epilepsy.
We describe a female insulinoma patient who presented with recurrent attacks of abnormal behavior, confusion, and seizure. Her interictal EEG showed epileptiform discharges on the left temporal area, therefore she was initially misdiagnosed as tempor

Isolated Hyperreligiosity in a Patient with Temporal Lobe Epilepsy.
A 40-year-old man with history of temporal lobe epilepsy presented to the emergency department with hyperreligiosity after medication noncompliance. After medications were resumed, he returned to baseline. Many famous prophets are believed to have su

Upregulated P2X3 Receptor Expression in Patients with Intractable Temporal Lobe Epilepsy and in a Rat Model of Epilepsy.
Purinergic P2X3 receptors (P2X3Rs) play extensive roles in nerve cells in the central nervous system, particularly in hyperexcitability and calcium (Ca(2+)) influx. However, the role of P2X3Rs in epilepsy has not been previously investigated. To dete

Prevalence of resistant occipital lobe epilepsy associated with celiac disease in children.
Celiac disease (CD) is a chronic, inflammatory autoimmune disorder caused by intolerance to ingested gluten. Increased frequency of CD has been reported in occipital lobe epilepsy. The aim of the present study is to investigate the frequency of CD am

Temporal lobe surgery for intractable epilepsy in children: What to do with the hippocampus?
Resection of the hippocampus can cause verbal memory decline, especially in the pediatric population. Thus, preservation of the hippocampus can be crucial for the quality of life of children with intractable temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) who are candi

The cognitive profile of occipital lobe epilepsy and the selective association of left temporal lobe hypometabolism with verbal memory impairment.
We investigated the cognitive profile of structural occipital lobe epilepsy (OLE) and whether verbal memory impairment is selectively associated with left temporal lobe hypometabolism on [18F]-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET)

Computer-automated focus lateralization of temporal lobe epilepsy using fMRI.
To compare the performance of computer-automated diagnosis using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) interictal graph theory (CADFIG) to that achieved in standard clinical practice with MRI, for lateralizing the affected hemisphere in tempor

Epilepsy surgery in pediatric intractable epilepsy with destructive encephalopathy.
The aim of the current study is to review the clinical features, surgery outcomes and parental satisfaction of children with destructive encephalopathy who underwent epilepsy surgery due to medically intractable seizures.
