Mesial temporal sclerosis in epilepsy
I just had an MRI which said I had mesial temporal sclerosis which from what I read on the internet is a hardening of the tissue (a scar) caused by injury, infection, brain tumor, oxygen issues. The nurse said I was born with it. She said it was in vitro . That doesn’t really make sense as in vitro happens outside the body so did this happen at birth and what caused it? I had another MRI last fall (another doctor) who had the same diagnosis but he said it was caused by a fall I had when I was 3 or 4 years old which made more sense to me. That one was done with and without contrast.
