BARRETO-ACEVEDO, Elliot; BECERRA-ZEGARRA, Alicia; VILLAFUERTE-ESPINOZA, Mirla V  and  LLAJA-ROJAS, Victoria. Epilepsy surgery in dual pathology approached with cortical direct stimulation and intraoperative electrocorticography: First case in Rebagliati Hospital. Rev Neuropsiquiatr [online]. 2016, vol.79, n.2, pp.127-134. ISSN 0034-8597.

The coexistence of hippocampal sclerosis with a potentially epileptogenic extra hippocampal injury is known as dual pathology, and presents a challenge to resection surgery strategies in cases of drug-resistant epilepsy. We present a case of drug-resistant focal epilepsy associated with dual pathology (left hippocampal sclerosis and left frontal gliosis), treated by means of direct cortical electrical stimulation and intraoperative electrocorticography with good short-term results.

Keywords : Epilepsy; temporal lobe; pathology; epilepsy; surgery; electrocorticography.
