Abstract

Purpose: Temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) is frequently associated with hippocampal sclerosis (HS) and complex febrile convulsions (CFC). The causal relationship between TLE, HS, and CFC is unclear. There is also contradictory data whether CFC-associated TLE is a distinct epilepsy syndrome and has different surgical outcome than other medial TLEs. Methods: We investigated 133 patients (aged 16-59 years) with HS-associated TLE. Thirty-six patients with CFC (CFC group) versus 97 patients without febrile convulsions (NFC group) were compared for clinical history, video-EEG recorded seizure semiology, and surgical outcome. Results: In the CFC group the right-sided HS (67% versus 32%) occurred more frequently than in the NFC group (P
