Özet

Mesial temporal lobe epilepsy syndrome (MTLES) is the most common surgically remediable epileptic syndrome in adults. Its diagnosis is easy when clinical history is supported by positive laboratory findings. However, routine EEG may not be informative in some patients, thus delaying accurate diagnosis. Therefore, we sought to determine how often routine EEGs displayed epileptiform discharges pre-operatively in a group of patients who underwent surgery for MILES.
