Focal cortical dysplasias
Focal cortical dysplasias are cytoarchitectural abnormalities most likely representing malformations of cortical development. Ranging from known genetic abnormalities to spontaneous mutations, these abnormalities most frequently present with intractable epilepsy. Prognosis depends on the extent of the cortical dysplasia, its location, and whether it is focal, multifocal, or diffuse (especially bihemispheric).
