Hippocampal Sclerosis - Symptoms - Temporal Lobe Epilepsy

Temporal Lobe Epilepsy

Ammon's horn (or Hippocampal) sclerosis (AHS) is the most common type of neuropathological damage seen in individuals with Temporal Lobe Epilepsy. This type of neuron cell loss, primarily in the hippocampus, can be observed in approximately 65% of people suffering from this form of epilepsy. Sclerotic Hippocampus is pointed to the most likely origin of chronic seizures in Temporal Lobe Epilepsy patients, rather than the amygdala or other temporal lobe regions. Although it is identified that hippocampal sclerosis is a distinctive feature of the pathology associated with Temporal Lobe Epilepsy, this disorder is not merely a consequence of proponged seizures as argued. A long and ongoing debate addresses the issue of whether hippocampal sclerosis is the cause or the consequence of chronic andpharmaceutically resistant seizure activity.

Famous quotes containing the words epilepsy and/or temporal:

    We are compelled by the theory of God’s already achieved perfection to make Him a devil as well as a god, because of the existence of evil. The god of love, if omnipotent and omniscient, must be the god of cancer and epilepsy as well.... Whoever admits that anything living is evil must either believe that God is malignantly capable of creating evil, or else believe that God has made many mistakes in His attempts to make a perfect being.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    What’s this, Aurora Leigh,
    You write so of the poets and not laugh?
    Those virtuous liars, dreamers after dark,
    Exaggerators of the sun and moon,
    And soothsayers in a tea-cup? I write so
    Of the only truth-tellers, now left to God,—
    The only speakers of essential truth,
    Opposed to relative, comparative,
    And temporal truths;...
    The only teachers who instruct mankind,
    From just a shadow on a charnel-wall.
    Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806–1861)
