Özet

Neurological disorders of different etiology, May cause identical clinical symptoms requiring additional diagnostic procedures for a precise differential diagnosis. Focal epileptic seizures have been shown to cause increased signal intensities in T2 and diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance images (MRI), mimicking other neurological disorders or diseases such as viral encephalitis. In some cases even the combination of neuroimaging and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) analysis is not sufficient to obtain the final diagnosis, since epileptic seizures may cause pleocytosis as well. Some epilepsy centers presented cases of focal status epilepticus with severe but reversible MRI changes.
