Abstract

In 73 patients with drug-resistant temporal lobe epilepsy submitted to an unilateral anterior temporal lobectomy the radiographs were studied to see if there were any correlation with the pathology subsequently found and with the outcome of the operation. A small middle cranial fossa, focal calcification, and temporal horn displacement are often better indices of the underlying pathology than temporal horn dilatation alone. In a small number of cases, however, radiological changes were seen on the side opposite to an unilateral EEG focus, thus suggesting bilateral disease. Images
