[34] However, not all patients have granule cell dispersion. Our primary outcome is time-to-seizure recurrence. Simple focal seizures are the initial non-febrile seizures followed by [20], Geschwind syndrome is a set of behavioural phenomena seen in some people with TLE. Clinical manifestations Pre-existing complex febrile convulsions are common. As a result of neuronal loss, the extracellular space is enlarged and thus diffusion of water molecules is greater on the affected side, resulting in increased values on the affected side (higher signal on ADC). Rarely NITS can be detected in children during the first decade of … Though they may not seem harmful, due to the fact that the individual does not normally seize, they can be extremely harmful if the individual is left alone around dangerous objects. [62], Epilepsy surgery has been performed since the 1860s and doctors have observed that it is highly effective in producing freedom from seizures. [1] A focal seizure in the temporal lobe may spread to other areas in the brain when it may become a focal to bilateral seizure. However, although the virus is found in temporal lobe tissue at surgery for TLE, it has not been recognised as a major factor in febrile seizures or TLE. It has been suggested that Pope Pius IX's doctrine of the immaculate conception was influenced by his forensically-diagnosed partial epilepsy. [citation needed], These seizures tend to have a warning or aura before they occur, and when they occur they generally tend to last only 1–2 minutes. Dysphoric or euphoric feelings, fear, anger, and other emotions may also occur. [66], Where surgery is not recommended, further management options include new (including experimental) anticonvulsants, and vagus nerve stimulation. T2 relaxometry may also be useful in detecting cases of hippocampal sclerosis . [29][30], In TLE, there is loss of neurons in region CA1 and CA3 of the hippocampus. Mesial Temporal Sclerosis (MTS) is a term used to describe scarring in deep part of the temporal lobe of the brain. The degree and length of postictal impairment directly correlates with the severity of the seizure type. [38] According to the "dormant basket cell" hypothesis, mossy cells normally excite basket cells which in turn, inhibit granule cells. In animal models, neuronal loss occurs during seizures but in humans, neuronal loss predates the first seizure and does not necessarily continue with seizure activity. This is an example of synaptic reorganization. There is some period of recovery in which neurological function is altered after each of these seizure types. It is seen in up to 65% of autopsy studies, although significantly less on imaging. [citation needed], Seizures which begin in the temporal lobe, and then spread to involve both sides of the brain are termed focal to bilateral. [76] The purported link between TLE and religiosity has inspired work by Michael Persinger and other researchers in the field of neurotheology. MRI is the modality of choice to evaluate the hippocampus, however dedicated TLE protocol needs to be performed if good sensitivity and specificity is to be achieved . abnormal morphology: loss of internal architecture (interdigitations of hippocampus), increased signal and or atrophy of the anterior thalamic nucleus, increased signal and/or reduction in the volume of the, dilatation of temporal horn and temporal lobe atrophy, collateral white matter and entorhinal cortex atrophy, loss of grey-white matter interface in the anterior temporal lobe, decreased NAA and decreased NAA/Cho and NAA/Cr ratios, decreased MI in ipsilateral temporal lobe, increased lipid  and lactate soon after as seizure. [53] Stimulation of aberrant mossy fibre areas increases the excitatory postsynaptic potential response. In children with newly diagnosed epilepsy, only ~ 1% have evidence of MTS on imaging . The first to record and catalog the abnormal symptoms and signs of TLE was Norman Geschwind. Focal aware seizures often last less than sixty seconds; focal with impaired awareness seizures may last up to two minutes; and generalized tonic clonic seizures may last up to three minutes. [citation needed], Focal impaired awareness seizures are seizures which impair consciousness to some extent:[2] they alter the person's ability to interact normally with their environment. See all (206) [21] The personality changes generally vary by hemisphere. [12], Although the theory is controversial, there is a link between febrile seizures (seizures coinciding with episodes of fever in young children) and subsequent temporal lobe epilepsy, at least epidemiologically. PMID: 33113540. Vagal Nerve Stimulation is a minimally invasive mesial temporal sclerosis treatment that employs an implanted stimulator to deliver electric impulses to an electrode on the vagal nerve in the neck via a lead wire implanted under the skin. A focal seizure in the temporal lobe may spread to other areas in the brain when it may become a focal to bilateral seizure. Figure 1: A. Coronal T2 weighted, B. Coronal FLAIR. 2. It has been shown that it is theoretically possible to generate seizures in the neural networks due to down-regulation of KCC2,[41] consistent with the chloride measurements during the transition to seizure[42] and KCC2 blockade experiments. Focal aware means that the level of consciousness is not altered during the seizure. This is followed by complex partial seizures with stereotypic semiology. Seizure 23/6 has published Factors predicting the outcome following medical treatment of mesial temporal epilepsy with hippocampal sclerosis. Anterior temporal lobectomy is successful in 75-90% of patients with MTS. Loss of mossy cells lowers the threshold of action potentials of the granule cells. Mesial temporal sclerosis is a specific pattern of hippocampal neuron cell loss. [2] Focal seizures account for approximately sixty percent of all adult cases. Columbia Once Again Ranked Among Top Medical Schools and Hospitals by U.S. News & World Report Columbia Participates in Major NIH Stroke Prevention Trial Columbia Pediatric Neurosurgery Group Publishes Review of Sickle Cell Treatment Columbia Receives ‘Great Neurosurgery and Spine Program’ Recognition Columbia Resident Neurosurgeon, Dr. Benjamin Kennedy Sends us Greetings From Uganda! This is evident in intracellular recordings. [70], A study in 2015, reported that intrinsic religiosity and religiosity outside of organized religion were higher in patients with epilepsy than in controls. In 1981, the ILAE recognized three types of seizures occurring in temporal lobe epilepsy. Follow up of children with febrile seizures does not demonstrate signifi… Learn more from the Epilepsy Foundation. [45][47] These changes may or may not be epileptogenic. Often, the patient cannot describe the sensations. The relationship, if any, of mesial temporal sclerosis with febrile seizures is controversial, made all the more difficult due to the relative insensitivity of imaging and the difficulty in establishing whether a particular seizure was truly febrile. Mesial temporal sclerosis is the most frequent cause of drug-resistant temporal lobe epilepsy but has a satisfactory response to surgery, and is considered infrequent in children. Epub 2012 Apr 24 doi: 10.1177/0883073811435325. Where both sides of the brain or the whole brain are involved from the onset, these seizures are known as generalized seizures and may be tonic clonic. They may include autonomic and psychic features present in focal aware seizures. Mesial temporal sclerosis usually results in partial (focal) epilepsy. [26][27][28], Dispersion of the granule cell layer in the hippocampal dentate gyrus is occasionally seen in temporal lobe epilepsy and has been linked to the downregulation of reelin, a protein that normally keeps the layer compact by containing neuronal migration. Mesial temporal sclerosis (MTS) is a common pathologic finding in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy. Prevalence ~20% of patients with epilepsies; 65% of mesial TLE. Documented by Norman Geschwind, signs include: hypergraphia (compulsion to write (or draw) excessively), hyperreligiosity (intense religious or philosophical experiences or interests), hyposexuality (reduced sexual interest or drive), circumstantiality (result of a non-linear thought pattern, talks at length about irrelevant and trivial details). Autosomal dominant lateral temporal lobe epilepsy (ADLTLE) is a rare hereditary condition, often associated with mutations in the LGI1 gene. Mesial temporal sclerosis (MTS, also called hippocampal sclerosis) is the most common underlying cause of temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). Ramachandran presented two subjects with neutral, sexually arousing and religious words while measuring GSR. study of patients with temporal lobe epilepsy of various age groups who underwent anterior temporal lobectomy and were diagnosed with mesial temporal sclerosis is needed to com-pare post-operative clinical outcomes between older and younger adults. Mesial temporal lobe epilepsy is the most common of the medically refractory chronic epilepsies. SPECT and PET imaging are also a useful adjuncts, with both ictal and interictal scans demonstrating abnormalities: Other causes of temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) should be considered, especially as small temporal lobe cortical tumours can have similar appearances. TLE is initially managed medically with anti-epileptic agents. [citation needed] The postictal state in seizures other than focal aware may last much longer than the seizure itself. In J. Engel Jr. & T.A. [citation needed], Individuals with temporal lobe epilepsy have a higher prevalence of depression than the general population. They usually begin with a focal aware seizure, then spread to a larger portion of the temporal lobe, resulting in impaired consciousness. Mossy fibre sprouting continues from one week to two months after injury. Declarative memory (memories which can be consciously recalled) is formed in the area of the hippocampus called the dentate gyrus. Controversy exists as to the causative mechanism: is mesial temporal sclerosis a result of temporal lobe epilepsy or vice versa ? Mesial temporal sclerosis (MTS), also commonly referred to as hippocampal sclerosis, is the most common association with intractable temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) 2,3,5. [1], Over forty types of epilepsy are recognized and these are divided into two main groups: focal seizures and generalized seizures. [13], The temporal lobe and particularly the hippocampus play an important role in memory processing. [71] Lower education level, abnormal background EEG activity, and hippocampal sclerosis have been found to be contributing factors for religiosity in TLE. [39], In certain patients with temporal lobe epilepsy it has been found that the subiculum could generate epileptic activity. In interictal periods, conversely, perfusion is reduced . Mesial temporal sclerosis is a frequent cause of epilepsy. In this patient it was a left sided temporal sclerosis. Age at onset Late childhood or adolescence. [72], TLE has been suggested as a materialistic explanation for the revelatory experiences of prominent religious figures such as Abraham, Moses, Jesus, Mohammed, Saint Paul, Joan of Arc,[73] Saint Teresa of Ávila, and Joseph Smith. Diagnosis: Mesial temporal sclerosis. [44][45] The granule cells of the dentate gyrus are tightly packed forming a uniform, laminated layer with no monosynaptic connections. Sex Males = females. [22][23][24][25], In the mid 1980s, human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) was suggested as a possible causal link between febrile convulsions and mesial temporal lobe epilepsy. [12] The word grand mal comes from the French term, meaning major affliction. English: Mesial Temporal Sclerosis. [4], The International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE) recognizes two main types of temporal lobe epilepsy: mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE), arising in the hippocampus, the parahippocampal gyrus and the amygdala which are located in the inner (medial) aspect of the temporal lobe and lateral temporal lobe epilepsy (LTLE), the rarer type, arising in the neocortex at the outer (lateral) surface of the temporal lobe. Histologically there is neuronal cell loss, gliosis and sclerosis. [61], Many anticonvulsant oral medications are available for the management of temporal lobe seizures. He found a constellation of symptoms that included hypergraphia, hyperreligiosity, collapse, and pedantism, now called Geschwind syndrome. Newer drugs, such as gabapentin, topiramate, levetiracetam, lamotrigine, pregabalin, tiagabine, lacosamide, and zonisamide promise similar effectiveness, with possibly fewer side-effects. [63], Temporal lobe surgery can be complicated by decreased cognitive function. When there is a single identifiable electrographic focus, these patients do well with removal of that focus (i.e., temporal lobectomy), achieving up to 66% long-term seizure freedom (Tellez-Zenteno et al., 2007). Animal models and clinical studies show that memory loss correlates with temporal lobe neuronal loss in temporal lobe epilepsy. Histologi- Neurological and mental state Usually normal prior to seizure onset. ), Benson, D.F. However, it was not until 2001 that a scientifically sound study was carried out to examine the effectiveness of temporal lobectomy. mesial temporal sclerosis: A condition characterised by induration of the middle temporal lobe, associated with cortical dysplasia and intractable temporal lobe epilepsy. There are 3 specific patterns of cell loss; Cell loss might involve sectors CA1 and CA4, CA4 alone, or CA1 to CA4 . Epub ahead of print. Often mentioned, but probably one of the least specific findings, is enlargement of the temporal horn of the lateral ventricle . The etiology is uncertain, although prolonged febrile seizures and limbic encephalitis have been implicated. Etiology Hippocampal sclerosis. [70][77], Focal to bilateral seizures or generalized seizures, Granule cell dispersion in the dentate gyrus, Please review the contents of the section and, de Lanerolle N. C. and Noebels J. L. [31](p387–389), Mossy fibers are the axons of granule cells. Temporal lobe in green, A sudden sense of unprovoked fear and anxiety, Auditory, visual, olfactory, gustatory, or tactile. Rarely MTS can be detected in children during the first decade of life, but is not commonly found until adolescence. [14][15][16][17][18], After childhood onset, one third will "grow out" of TLE, finding a lasting remission up to an average of 20 years. When severe and long standing, additional associated findings include : Additional 3D volumetric studies can be performed, and although time consuming to post-process may be more sensitive to subtle hippocampal volume loss. Personality and behavioural change in temporal lobe epilepsy is seen as a chronic condition when it persists for more than three months. [5], When a seizure begins in the temporal lobe, its effects depend on the precise location of its point of origin, its locus. Conversely, due to neuronal dysfunction and swelling, diffusion is restricted following a seizure, and thus values are lower . This study was presented as an abstract at a neuroscience conference and referenced in Ramachandran's book, Phantoms in the Brain,[69] but it has never been published in the peer-reviewed scientific press. [64][65] Cognitive rehabilitation may also help. & Hermann, B.P. Also, in animal models, granule cell hyper-excitability is recorded before aberrant mossy fibre sprouting has occurred.[56][57][58][59]. Verbal memory deficit correlates with pyramidal cell loss in TLE. Vázquez-Barrón D, Cuéllar-Herrera M, Velasco F, Velasco AL. Automatic movements of the hands or mouth, Altered ability to respond to others, unusual speech, This page was last edited on 11 January 2021, at 00:42. [6] However, as of 2017 the general classification of seizures has been revised. Electrical Stimulation of Subiculum for the Treatment of Refractory Mesial Temporal Lobe Epilepsy with Hippocampal Sclerosis: A 2-Year Follow-Up Study. First-aid is only required if there has been an injury or if this is the first time a person has had a seizure. The diagnosis of temporal lobe epilepsy can include the following methods:[60] Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), CT scans, positron emission tomography (PET), EEG, and magnetoencephalography. If anything, care must be taken not to allow an enlarged horn to trick you into thinking the hippocampus is reduced in size. (ed. Mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE) associated with hippocampal sclerosis (HS) is considered an electroclinical syndrome, and there is a debate whether it is a unique disease or an entity with distinct subtypes. [31](p416–431)[46][50][51][52], Aberrant mossy fibre sprouting may create excitatory feedback circuits that lead to temporal lobe seizures. Date: 3 July 2007: Source: Luis Aranguren: Author: Mercurytoxic: Licensing . It is not uncommon for an individual to be tired or confused for up to 15 minutes after a seizure has occurred, although postictal confusion can last for hours or even days. Follow up of children with febrile seizures does not demonstrate significant increased incidence of temporal lobe epilepsy . Patients with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) due to mesial temporal sclerosis (MTS) are eligible candidates for resective epilepsy surgery. Gadolinium is not required . The finding of a lesion such as hippocampal sclerosis (a scar in the hippocampus), tumour, or dysplasia, on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) predicts the intractability of seizures. Mesial temporal sclerosis in a cohort of children with SCN1A gene mutation. Most patients present with complex partial temporal lobe epilepsy. TLE is diagnosed by taking a medical history, blood tests, and brain imaging. Most anticonvulsants function by decreasing the excitation of neurons, for example, by blocking fast or slow sodium channels or by modulating calcium channels; or by enhancing the inhibition of neurons, for example by potentiating the effects of inhibitory neurotransmitters like GABA. During the peri-ictal phases, perfusion is increased, not only in the mesial temporal lobe but often in large parts of temporal lobe and hemisphere. Coronal volume and coronal high resolution T2WI/FLAIR are best to diagnose MTS. Associated hippocampal atrophy and gliosis is common. [19], The effect of temporal lobe epilepsy on personality is a historical observation dating to the 1800s. Temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) is a chronic disorder of the nervous system characterized by recurrent, unprovoked focal seizures that originate in the temporal lobe of the brain and last about one or two minutes. This applies worldwide. Up to a third of patients with established refractory temporal lobe epilepsy have a history of seizures in childhood at the time of fever 3. Public domain Public domain false false: I, the copyright holder of this work, release this work into the public domain. Although the psychosocial impacts of epilepsy may be causative, there are also links in the phenomenology and neurobiology of TLE and depression. It is unknown whether changes in reelin expression play a role in epilepsy. [46], In TLE, granule cells are lost, the structure is no longer closely packed and there are changes in the orientation of dendrites. [3] The seizures of LTLE are characterized by auditory or visual features. Study population An It has been found that GABA reversal potential is depolarising[40] in the subpopulation of the pyramidal cells due to the lack of KCC2 co-transporter. [citation needed], The newer classification gives two types of focal onset seizures, as focal aware and focal impaired awareness.[2]. Most patients present with complex partial temporal lobe epilepsy. They project into the hilus of the dentate gyrus and stratum lucidum in the CA3 region giving inputs to both excitatory and inhibitory neurons. Mesial temporal sclerosis Etiology Controversy exists as to the causative mechanism: is mesial temporal sclerosis a result of temporal lobe epilepsy or viceversa. We report on 2 male patients aged 4 years with suspected TLE due to MTS who were referred for presurgical evaluation. The hippocampal formation is not uniformly affected, with the dentate gyrus, and the CA1, CA4 and to a lesser degree CA3 sections of the hippocampus being primarily involved . In children with newly diagnosed epilepsy, only approximately 1% have evidence of MTS on imaging. [7] The arms, trunk, and legs stiffen (the tonic phase), in either a flexed or extended position, and then jerk (the clonic phase). [46] This structure provides a filter for the excitability of neurons. [31][32] There is also damage to mossy cells and inhibitory interneurons in the hilar region of the hippocampus (region IV) and to the granule cells of the dentate gyrus. Developed by renowned radiologists in each specialty, STATdx provides comprehensive decision support you can rely on - Mesial Temporal Sclerosis Regardless, an aura is actually a seizure itself, and such a focal seizure may or may not progress to a focal impaired awareness seizure. The relationship, if any, of mesial temporal sclerosis with febrile seizures is controversial, made all the more difficult due to the relative insensitivity of imaging and the difficulty in establishing whether a particular seizure was truly febrile. [citation needed], Up to one third of patients with medial temporal lobe epilepsy will not have adequate seizure control with medication alone. Psychiatric conditions with psychotic spectrum symptoms might be more plausible physical explanation of these experiences. Pedley (Eds. Furthermore, in adults 3-10% of cases of mesial temporal sclerosis demonstrate bilateral changes even though symptoms may be unilateral. [43], Granule cell dispersion is a type of developmental migration and a pathological change found in the TLE brain which was first described in 1990. This seizure disorder can cause a variety of symptoms such as strange sensations, changes in behavior or emotions, muscle spasms, or convulsions.The seizures usually are localized in the brain, but they may spread to become generalized seizures, which involve the entire brain and may cause a sudden loss of awareness or consciousness. ), "A proposed diagnostic scheme for people with epileptic seizures and with epilepsy: report of the ILAE Task Force on Classification and Terminology", "LGI1 mutations in autosomal dominant and sporadic lateral temporal epilepsy", "2017 Revised Classification of Seizures", "Synesthetic associations and psychosensory symptoms of temporal epilepsy", "Cortical thickness abnormalities associated with depressive symptoms in temporal lobe epilepsy", "Association of Human Herpesvirus-6B with Mesial Temporal Lobe Epilepsy", "Detection of human herpesvirus-6 in mesial temporal lobe epilepsy surgical brain resections", "Role for reelin in the development of granule cell dispersion in temporal lobe epilepsy", "Reelin deficiency and displacement of mature neurons, but not neurogenesis, underlie the formation of granule cell dispersion in the epileptic hippocampus", "Loss of hilar mossy cells in Ammon's horn sclerosis", "Reduced inhibition of dentate granule cells in a model of temporal lobe epilepsy", "Quantitative post-mortem study of the hippocampus in chronic epilepsy: seizures do not inevitably cause neuronal loss", "GABAergic mechanisms in the pathogenesis and treatment of epilepsy", "Perturbed Chloride Homeostasis and GABAergic Signaling in Human Temporal Lobe Epilepsy", "Reduced Efficacy of the KCC2 Cotransporter Promotes Epileptic Oscillations in a Subiculum Network Model", "Pyramidal cells accumulate chloride at seizure onset", "Selective Inhibition of KCC2 Leads to Hyperexcitability and Epileptiform Discharges in Hippocampal Slices and In Vivo", "Cell proliferation and granule cell dispersion in human hippocampal sclerosis", 10.1002/(sici)1096-9861(19970901)385:3<325::aid-cne1>3.0.co;2-5, "Axon sprouting in a model of temporal lobe epilepsy creates a predominantly excitatory feedback circuit", "Evidence of functional mossy fiber sprouting in hippocampal formation of kainic acid-treated rats", "Kainic acid-induced recurrent mossy fiber innervation of dentate gyrus inhibitory interneurons: possible anatomical substrate of granule cell hyperinhibition in chronically epileptic rats", "Spontaneous release of neuropeptide Y tonically inhibits recurrent mossy fiber synaptic transmission in epileptic brain", "Temporal Lobe Epilepsy Workup: Approach Considerations, Computed Tomography Scanning, Magnetic Resonance Imaging", "Temporal Lobe Epilepsy; TLE medical Information Page | Patient", "Changing frontal contributions to memory before and after medial temporal lobectomy", "MR-guided stereotactic laser ablation of epileptogenic foci in children", "Spirituality aspects in patients with epilepsy", "The role of psychotic disorders in religious history considered", "Seizures among public figures: lessons learned from the epilepsy of Pope Pius IX", Reproductive endocrinology and infertility, Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery, https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Temporal_lobe_epilepsy&oldid=999598843, Short description is different from Wikidata, Articles with unsourced statements from December 2020, Articles with unsourced statements from September 2016, Articles with unsourced statements from February 2014, Articles needing additional medical references from August 2017, All articles needing additional references, Articles requiring reliable medical sources, Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License, Lobes of the brain.
