These range very widely in site, extent and etiology. Cerebral infarction, the effects of infection both directly or as a consequence of secondary vascular changes, and the consequences of cranial trauma may all lead to such lesions. In general, to be amenable to resective surgery, such changes, whatever their origin, should be circumscribed and unilateral. If so, the solution is local resection.
Early pathological studies suggested that mesial temporal sclerosis was predominantly, rather than exclusively, unilateral . The UCLA Group have shown that surgical outcome can be correlated with the completeness of the removal and others that it can be correlated with the severity of the neuronal loss and the existence of dual pathology.
