Pathology of seizure disorders

Neuroimaging Clin N Am. 1995 Nov;5(4):527-45.


A variety of pathologic lesions associated with seizures are described in this article. Because of concerted efforts of workers in the field, remarkable progress has been made in the early detection, resection, and characterization of previously poorly defined pathologic processes. It is hoped that with further advancement of the neurosciences, most of the cryptogenic cases may be categorized so that the epileptogenic mechanism in individual lesions can be better understood.
