Cortical dysplasia (MRI) (2)

Coronal T2 (A), spoiled gradient recall (B), and FLAIR (C) weighted sequences demonstrate a focal area of cortical thickening (arrow) and abnormal signal in the left fusiform gyrus of the temporo-occipital lobe in a patient with refractory seizures. This area was resected and found to be consistent with focal cortical dysplasia pathologically. (Contributed by Dr. Diana Gomez-Hassan.)
