A clinical case of familial temporal epilepsy type 5 (OMIM 614417) with onset at the age of 14 years is described for the first time in the domestic literature. The leading manifestations of the disease were focal seizures of systemic vertigo, accompanied by vestibular ataxia and, sometimes, vomiting. Cognitive and emotional disturbances were observed as well. On the EEG of wakefulness and sleep, a non-expressed epileptiform activity was detected in the left parietotemporal and frontotemporal zone. Neuroimaging did not show any significant changes. Only a molecular genetic study that identified CPA6 gene mutation made it possible to establish the accurate diagnosis.

Auditory aura was the very important clinical character in familial temporal Lobe epilepsy. LGI1 was the main pathogenic gene. The inheritance mode of this disease was autosomal dominant. We describes...
We sought to highlight a case of refractory mesial temporal lobe epilepsy managed via an anterior temporal lobectomy. To our knowledge, this is the first of its kind to be performed and published in t...
Type IIB focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) is an important cause of drug-resistant epilepsy. However, balloon cells located in the medial temporal lobe have been seldom reported. We aimed to discuss the ...
To examine the shared familial contribution to hippocampal and extrahippocampal morphological abnormalities in patients with sporadic temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) and their unaffected siblings.
Sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP) is a significant cause of premature seizure-related death. An association between SUDEP and cardiac remodeling has been suggested. However, whether SUDEP is...
This study will compare radiosurgery (focused radiation, Gamma Knife Radiosurgery) with temporal lobectomy (standard surgical care) as a treatment of temporal lobe epilepsy. Patients who h...
The study aims to compare the safety and effectiveness of deep brain stimulation of the hippocampus and the anterior nucleus of the thalamus for reducing the frequency of seizures in patie...
We aim to o evaluate the role of conventional and advanced MRI sequences in diagnosis of idiopathic temporal lobe epilepsy including identification and lateralization of epileptogenic focu...
Our primary goal is to determine whether hippocampal electrical stimulation (HS) is safe and more effective than simply implanting an electrode in the hippocampus without electrical stimul...
This study will give important information about long term consequences of temporal lobe epilepsy surgery on cognition (memory, language, concentration etc), psychiatric function and quali...
A localization-related (focal) form of epilepsy characterized by recurrent seizures that arise from foci within the temporal lobe, most commonly from its mesial aspect. A wide variety of psychic phenomena may be associated, including illusions, hallucinations, dyscognitive states, and affective experiences. The majority of complex partial seizures (see EPILEPSY, COMPLEX PARTIAL) originate from the temporal lobes. Temporal lobe seizures may be classified by etiology as cryptogenic, familial, or symptomatic (i.e., related to an identified disease process or lesion).

A neurosurgical procedure that removes the anterior TEMPORAL LOBE including the medial temporal structures of CEREBRAL CORTEX; AMYGDALA; HIPPOCAMPUS; and the adjacent PARAHIPPOCAMPAL GYRUS. This procedure is generally used for the treatment of intractable temporal epilepsy (EPILEPSY, TEMPORAL LOBE).
A localization-related (focal) form of epilepsy characterized by seizures which arise in the frontal lobe. A variety of clinical syndromes exist depending on the exact location of the seizure focus. Simple or complex motor movements may occur, and most commonly involve the face and upper extremities. Seizures in the anterior frontal regions may be associated with head and eye turning, typically away from the side of origin of the seizure. Frontal lobe seizures may be idiopathic (cryptogenic) or caused by an identifiable disease process such as traumatic injuries, neoplasms, or other macroscopic or microscopic lesions of the frontal lobes (symptomatic frontal lobe seizures). (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp318-9)
A disorder characterized by recurrent localized paroxysmal discharges of cerebral neurons that give rise to seizures that have motor manifestations. The majority of partial motor seizures originate in the FRONTAL LOBE (see also EPILEPSY, FRONTAL LOBE). Motor seizures may manifest as tonic or clonic movements involving the face, one limb or one side of the body. A variety of more complex patterns of movement, including abnormal posturing of extremities, may also occur.
An illusion of movement, either of the external world revolving around the individual or of the individual revolving in space. Vertigo may be associated with disorders of the inner ear (EAR, INNER); VESTIBULAR NERVE; BRAINSTEM; or CEREBRAL CORTEX. Lesions in the TEMPORAL LOBE and PARIETAL LOBE may be associated with FOCAL SEIZURES that may feature vertigo as an ictal manifestation. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp300-1)
