Abstract: The authors clarified the value of interictal discharges and verified which extratemporal regions may also show epileptiform activity in temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) in childhood. Thirty consecutive patients aged 3 to 18 years (mean age = 12.16 years; 16 male) with TLE associated with hippocampal atrophy were studied. Each patient had 1 to 15 interictal EEG recordings (mean: 5.6; total = 192 EEGs). Video-EEG monitoring was performed in 20 patients. All patients had MRI. The findings were compared with a control group of 53 consecutive TLE adult outpatients with hippocampal atrophy. Each adult patient underwent 3 to 21 routine EEGs (mean: 10.67; total = 566). Interictal EEGs of children with TLE showed extratemporal epileptiform discharges more frequently than EEGs of adults with TLE. Frontal, parietal, and occipital discharges were more frequently seen in children (P < 0.05). These results suggest a close interaction between temporal and other cerebral regions in children with epilepsy and provide further evidence of the existence of neural networks.
