1. The sections of temporal neocortex and white matter show patchy mild gliosis of the sub-pial molecular layer (Chaslin's sclerosis). Cortical laminar architecture is preserved. There are no features of malformation of cortical development. Scattered neurones are noted in white matter. Myelination appears normal. No features of tumour are seen.
2. The section of amygdala shows a disorderly arrangement of enlarged and dysmorphic neurones with a focal back-to-back arrangement. No balloon neurones are seen. No evidence of tumour is seen. The features are of amydgala dysplasia.
3. Serial sections of hippocampus show mild reduction in the numbers of neurones at the interface between CA1 and CA2. There is preservation of neurones in CA3 and CA4. The dentate fasciculus appears unremarkable with preservation of neuronal numbers and no evidence of dispersion. No evidence of tumour is seen.
- "Temporal cortex": Mild Chaslin's sclerosis only.
- "Amygdala": Amygdala dysplasia
- "Hippocampus": Mild hippocampal sclerosis (Blumcke Type 2)
