Hippocampal sclerosis in a two-year-old with temporal lobe epilepsy: case report with pathological confirmation.

Author information

  • 1Department of Neurosurgery, University of Tennessee, Memphis, Tenn, USA.


The case of a 2-year-old girl who underwent anterior temporal lobectomy for intractable epilepsy is described. Hippocampal sclerosis (HS) was present on histopathological examination. We believe this to be one of the youngest reported patients with pathologically confirmed HS. This has implications for the possible etiology of HS.
