Abstract

We herein describe two cases of patients with epilepsy with occipital lobe cortical dysplasia who were studied with both MR spectroscopy and MR diffusion imaging in addition to conventional MR imaging. Greater diffusion abnormalities, as well as more marked decreases in N-acetylaspartate, were observed to occur in the patient harboring a low grade neoplasm within an area of cortical dysplasia than in the patient with cortical dysplasia alone.
