Abstract

Magnetoencephalography (MEG) and positron emission tomography (PET) revealed abnormal findings in the lateral temporal lobe of a 22 year old female with mesial temporal lobe epilepsy. Electroencephalography identified the epileptogenic focus in the left mesial temporal lobe and standard anterior temporal lobectomy resulted in a good surgical outcome. These discrepancies can be explained by the presence of anatomical and functional pathways between the mesial and lateral temporal structures, or pathophysiological abnormalities in both the mesial and lateral temporal lobes. Careful evaluation is necessary for analysis of MEG and PET findings in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy.
