Cortical dysplasia

Cortical dysplasia is the most common neuropathologic substrate in pediatric epilepsy surgery. Its presentation includes multiple electropathologic syndromes that may be focal or multilobar. The lesion is not always apparent on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), or the visible lesion may be only a small part of a diffuse structural abnormality. Complete resection of the entire lesion is associated with the best postsurgery seizure control.
