Abstract

Malformations of cortical development are important causes of developmental delay and epilepsy. They are classified by the presumed stage during which normal development is interrupted: neuronal proliferation and differentiation, neuronal migration, and late migration/cortical organization. This article discusses the important malformations in each of these groups, how and why the malformations develop, and their imaging findings. A better understanding of these disorders helps in genetic counseling of the parents and may help in the treatment of associated epilepsy.
