BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) covers a spectrum of con-ditions in which the neuropathologic and electroclinic presentations and the surgical outcomes vary. 2017 Oct;58(10):1697-1705. doi: 10.1111/epi.13855. Malformation of cortical development (MCD) is a well-known cause of drug-resistant epilepsy and focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) is the most common neuropathological finding in surgical specimens from drug-resistant epilepsy patients. 2020 Nov;61(11):2509-2520. doi: 10.1111/epi.16682.

We also investigated the practical conditions for high interictal-preictal discriminability in terms of spatiotemporal EEG characteristics and data size efficiency. Dysmorphic neurons (A) and balloon cells (B) of focal cortical dysplasia in type IIa and IIb, respectively (hematoxylin and eosin, original magnification, ×200). Epilepsia. Clinical, imaging, and immunohistochemical characteristics of focal cortical dysplasia Type II extratemporal epilepsies in children: analyses of an institutional case series. The Diagnostic Methods commission of the International League against Epilepsy (ILAE) released a first international consensus classification of Focal Cortical Dysplasia (FCD) in 2011. Focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) and hemimegalencephaly (HME) are malformations of cortical development (MCDs) representing the most common cause of neocortical childhood-onset seizures [4, 14].Seizures associated with FCD/HME are often refractory to antiepileptic drugs, and require surgical resection of the epileptogenic zone, allowing direct access to the dysplastic brain tissue for … Barkovich classifies focal cortical dysplasias among the his extensive classification system for malformations of cortical development, distributing them as follows: In contrast, the Palmini classification, the leading classification system used for focal cortical dysplasia, based its classification purely on histopathological grounds, and has recently been largely replaced by the  Blumcke classification of focal cortical dysplasia (2011). 2011 Jul-Aug;30(4):164-77. doi: 10.5414/np300398. Neuropathologic measurements in focal cortical dysplasias: validation of the ILAE 2011 classification system and diagnostic implications for MRI. Value of 7T MRI and post-processing in patients with nonlesional 3T MRI undergoing epilepsy presurgical evaluation. Since that time, this FCD classification has been widely used in clinical diagnosis and research (more than 740 papers cited in Pubmed between 1/1/2012 and 7/1/2017). Most cases were reclassified to FCD type Barkovich AJ, Kuzniecky RI, Jackson GD et-al. Neuropathological work-up of focal cortical dysplasias using the new ILAE consensus classification system - practical guideline article invited by the Euro-CNS Research Committee. These results pave the way for the design of an integrated clinico-pathological and genetic classification system, as recently recommended by the WHO for the classification of malignant brain tumours. Herein, we review the new data that will inform and revise the FCD classification. PubMed 45.

Summary Focal cortical dysplasia is a malformation of cortical development, which is the most common cause of medically refractory epilepsy in the pediatric population and the second/third most common etiology of medically intractable seizures in adults. Taylor DC, Falconer MA, Bruton CJ et-al. In addition, the electro-clinico-imaging phenotype and surgical outcomes of FCD type II (in particular type IIb) were further defined and validated. Unsupervised machine learning reveals lesional variability in focal cortical dysplasia at mesoscopic scale. The revised ILAE classification of focal cortical dysplasia still relies mainly on microscopic histopathology, but the neuropathological study of resected brain tissue with focal cortical dysplasia also requires immunocytochemical markers of cellular lineage and maturation, and recommendations for the technical study of such tissue also is progress (Blümcke et al 2016). 2018; 44 (1): 18-31. Background Focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) is the most prevalent cause of intractable epilepsy in children. Perturbation of any of these processes, as a result of a genetic defect or noxious environmental influence, usually results in malformations of cortical development (MCD). The Diagnostic Methods commission of the International League against Epilepsy (ILAE) released a first international consensus classification of Focal Cortical Dysplasia (FCD) in 2011. Would you like email updates of new search results? The temporal cortex plays a pivotal role in temporal lobe seizures. With advances in neuroimaging techniques, in particular MRI, recent studies have revealed a higher prevalence of FCD than previously estimated and have improved the preoperative identification and classification of these abnormalities. . Type IIa (transcortical dysplasia without balloon cells) as malformations due to abnormal cortical organization In contrast, the Palmini classification , the leading classification system used for focal cortical dysplasia , based its classification purely on histopathological grounds, and has recently been largely replaced by the Blumcke classification of focal cortical dysplasia (2011).
