Neuropathology of Focal Epilepsies: An Atlas

      It was about 120 years ago that Dr Horsley successfully resected epileptogenic lesions from three patients with partial epilepsy at the National Hospital in London. Since then neurosurgical intervention has become one of the indispensable measures for treating therapy-resistant focal epilepsy. With recent development of high-resolution as well as functional imaging technologies, epileptogenic foci can appropriately be diagnosed prior to surgical resection. When combined imaging data with pathology of surgically resected brain materials, it turned out that the nature of focal epilepsy is variable in terms of its neuropathology.
