False lateralization of scalp EEG seizure onset


Journal Article

We report a patient with lateralized right-sided ictal scalp EEG activity contralateral to left mesial temporal seizure onset as documented by depth electrodes. Subsequent left temporal lobectomy revealed mesial temporal sclerosis and resulted in a marked reduction (97%) in seizure frequency. This case illustrates the frequently discussed, but rarely documented, occurrence of false lateralization of scalp EEG seizure onset in a patient with temporal lobe epilepsy. © 1993.
