Case Discussion

Histologically confirmed mesial temporal sclerosis

Microscopic Description: 

Sections of the mesial structures confirm mesial temporal sclerosis, which is represented by a profound depletion of neurons within CA1. A localized aggregate of neurocytic cells is observed, equivalent to focal microdysgenesis. No other diagnostic neuropathologic findings are seen. Subpial gliosis is evident.
