Introduction: The distribution of hippocampal sclerosis (HS) subtypes, according to the classification of the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE), has been reported mainly in adult patients. We aimed to review the pathological findings in children who had anterior temporal lobectomy accompanied with amygdalohippocampectomy, in view of the current classification, and evaluate postsurgical outcome with respect to HS subtypes in childhood.
