|Title:||Hippocampal sclerosis following brief generalized seizures in adulthood.||Austin Authors:||Briellmann, Regula S;Newton, Mark R;Wellard, R M;Jackson, Graeme D||Affiliation:||Brain Research Institute, Austin and Repatriation Medical Center, and University of Melbourne, Australia||Issue Date:||24-Jul-2001||Publication information:||Neurology; 57(2): 315-7||Abstract:||This report describes a patient who had a first generalized tonic clonic seizure (GTCS) at the age of 18 years. The initial MRI scan was normal on visual and quantitative examination. After a further six GTCS, a second MRI scan showed reduced hippocampal volume and increased hippocampal T2 signal, which was confirmed in a third scan. Therefore, hippocampal sclerosis may be acquired in adulthood after brief GTCS.||Gov't Doc #:||11468318||URI:||http://ahro.austin.org.au/austinjspui/handle/1/9324||URL:||https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/11468318||Type:||Journal Article||Subjects:||Adolescent
