Epilepsy & Seizures
Mesial temporal lobe epilepsy with hippocampal sclerosis
Mesial temporal lobe epilepsy with hippocampal sclerosis is a common form of epilepsy that is often progressive with worsening seizures, cognitive function, and depression. The first habitual seizures usually occur in late childhood or early adolescence. The first recognized ictal event might be a bilateral tonic-clonic seizure or a focal seizure with impaired awareness or interaction. Temporal lobe seizures are usually preceded by an aura.
