Complex Cortical Dysplasia with Other Brain Malformations Type 5


Presentation

  • The most common clinical presentation is intractable seizures. Heterotopia present as nodular foci of grey matter intensity on all sequences. They do not enhance. Heterotopia Images of a typical subependymal heterotopia.[radiologyassistant.nl]
  • Patients with isolated subependymal heterotopia usually present with a seizure disorder in the second decade of life. Subependymal heterotopia present in a wide array of variations.[en.wikipedia.org]
  • Cortical dysplasia; other clinical presentations  Dysplasia involving extratemporal regions demonstrates earlier age at presentation, more severe epilepsy, higher incidence of mental retardation and developmental delay. 21.[slideshare.net]
  • Although focal cortical dysplasia is a congenital malformation and present at birth, the patient may not develop epilepsy until childhood, adolescence, or adulthood.[rscdiagnosticservices.com]
  • Children with classic LIS often appear normal as newborns but may present with apnea, poor feeding, or hypotonia.[neupsykey.com]
Gingival Fibroma
  • Minor features Dental pits: Multiple and randomly distributed Rectal polyps: Hamartomatous Bone cysts Cerebral white matter migration lines Gingival fibromas Nonrenal hamartoma Retinal achromic patch "Confetti" skin lesions Multiple renal cysts.[jdrntruhs.org]
Skin Lesion
  • Minor features Dental pits: Multiple and randomly distributed Rectal polyps: Hamartomatous Bone cysts Cerebral white matter migration lines Gingival fibromas Nonrenal hamartoma Retinal achromic patch "Confetti" skin lesions Multiple renal cysts.[jdrntruhs.org]
Shagreen Patch
Facial Angiofibroma
  • Major features Facial angiofibroma or forehead plaque Nontraumatic ungual or periungual fibroma Hypomelanotic macules (3 or more) Shagreen patch Multiple retinal nodular hamartomas Cortical tuber Subependymal nodule Subependymal giant cell astrocytoma[jdrntruhs.org]
Freckles
  • Recklinghausen disease) Diagnostic criteria: 2 or more of following findings: [41] 6 or more 5 mm or larger café-au-lait spots 1 plexiform neurofibroma or 2 or more neurofibromas of any type [Figure 15] 2 or more lisch nodules Axillary/inguinal region freckling[jdrntruhs.org]

Workup

  • Other features include a Chief Complaints section addressing the workup and treatment of 50 signs and symptoms, plus a medication index, syndromes glossary, surgical glossary, laboratory values, and tables all for quick reference saving you time and helping[books.google.de]
  • This requires extensive workup with detailed brain imaging and EEGs. A neurosurgeon will then surgically remove the area of the brain that is causing the seizures. This is called epilepsy surgery.[childneurologyfoundation.org]
Multiple Renal Cysts
  • Minor features Dental pits: Multiple and randomly distributed Rectal polyps: Hamartomatous Bone cysts Cerebral white matter migration lines Gingival fibromas Nonrenal hamartoma Retinal achromic patch "Confetti" skin lesions Multiple renal cysts.[jdrntruhs.org]
Polyps
  • Minor features Dental pits: Multiple and randomly distributed Rectal polyps: Hamartomatous Bone cysts Cerebral white matter migration lines Gingival fibromas Nonrenal hamartoma Retinal achromic patch "Confetti" skin lesions Multiple renal cysts.[jdrntruhs.org]
White Matter Lesions
  • CNS manifestation includes cortical tubers, white matter lesions, subependymal nodules (along lateral ventricles along striothalamic groove) [Figure 14] and subependymal giant cell astrocytoma (located in foramen of monro). [38] Non-CNS lesions are renal[jdrntruhs.org]

Treatment

  • Surgical treatment for localization related infantile spasms. Clinical Neurology and Neurosurgery. Apr 2011. 113 (3):213-7. Olson HE, et al. Rufinamide for the treatment of epileptic spasms. Epilepsy and Behavior. Feb 2011. 20(2):344-8.[rarediseases.org]
  • This will be extended at one week intervals/three patient groups to a maximum treatment duration of 28 days.[clinicaltrials.gov]
  • Other features include a Chief Complaints section addressing the workup and treatment of 50 signs and symptoms, plus a medication index, syndromes glossary, surgical glossary, laboratory values, and tables all for quick reference saving you time and helping[books.google.de]
  • What are the Treatments? The treatment is based on controlling the seizures. Focal seizures with identified focal cortical dysplasia can be very difficult to control with antiepileptic medications.[rscdiagnosticservices.com]

Prognosis

  • It is a widely used marker for cell proliferation, very valuable in cancer diagnosis and prognosis. In this case, the term “widely” seems an understatement.[uniprot.org]
  • The careful assessment of patients with these abnormalities is important in order to provide an accurate prognosis and genetic counselling.[jnnp.bmj.com]
  • On the other hand bottom of the sulcus appears as a highly epileptogenic lesion with an excellent prognosis for seizure control following focal resection.[neurocirugia-princesa.net]
  • Causes and Prognosis [ edit ] In general, gray matter heterotopia is fixed in both its occurrence and symptoms; that is, once symptoms occur, it does not tend to progress.[en.wikipedia.org]
  • PROGNOSIS What is the outcome with treatment? About 60 to 70% of children will stop having seizures after treatment with one AED. Response to therapy depends a great deal on the seizure type and the cause for the epilepsy.[childneurologyfoundation.org]

Etiology

  • ETIOLOGY Many authors consider this abnormalities that produce FCD can be attributed to a combination of environmental and genetic factors.[neurocirugia-princesa.net]
  • In addition to the essential role of fever, birth injury or anoxia and structural cerebral pathology may be factors in etiology and should not negate the diagnosis of FS. (Millichap JG et al, 1960).[pediatricneurologybriefs.com]
  • The underlying etiology of infantile spasms (West syndrome) from the United Kingdom Infantile Spasms Study (UKISS) on contemporary causes and their classification. Epilepsia. Oct 2010. 51(10):2168-74. Peltzer B, et al.[rarediseases.org]
  • .  Cortical dysplasia is the most common substrate in pediatric and the second or third most frequent etiology in adult epilepsy surgery patients 18.[slideshare.net]
  • Abstract Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the most commonly used noninvasive imaging modality for epilepsy diagnosis, etiologic classification, and management.[touchneurology.com]

Pathophysiology

  • Despite this limitation, it was possible to address several aspects that relate to pathophysiological mechanisms in tubers.[journals.plos.org]

  • Ki-67 size and overall electric charge may form a repulsive shield, preventing coalescence. The range of Ki-67-mediated chromosome repulsion seems to depend on molecular density.[uniprot.org]
  • He said “it is possible that the HPV vaccines currently used to prevent cervical cancer might also result in fewer children born with focal cortical dysplasia and associated epilepsy.” Dr.[journals.lww.com]
  • Functional images must be obtained prior to surgery if we are to generate a cortical map in order to prevent post-operative neurological deficits. 39 This is almost always successful according to the results of our series.[elsevier.es]
  • PREVENTION Seizures can be prevented by regularly taking the prescribed medications. In fact, not taking medications is the most common cause for breakthrough seizures. During times of illness or stress, seizures can occur.[childneurologyfoundation.org]
