sup] Gray matter heterotopias are best divided into three categories: subependymal, subcortical, and band heterotopia.
SNH was the most common type, followed by subcortical heterotopia, whereas band heterotopia was the least common type.
4) Laminar heterotopia consists of bands of neurons between the cortex and lateral ventricles; it is therefore also known as band heterotopia
or double cortex.
Dobyns: The clinical patterns and molecular genetics of lissencephaly and subcortical band heterotopia
Subcortical heterotopia: Subcortical Band Heterotopia falls under lissencephaly spectrum of heterotopia.
In subcortical heterotopia (other than band heterotopia or cortical infolding), no cause has been identified.
Experts have discovered Toni suffers from Band Heterotopia
, a severe genetic condition linked to epilepsy.
According to the location of heterotopia, patients were classified into three groups: subependymal, sub-cortical and band heterotopia
Patients with band heterotopia
often present with "double cortex".
Most standard MR imaging protocols typically used to evaluate intracranial disease are suboptimal in the identification of subtleepileptogenic substrates, such as cortical dysplasia, hippocampal sclerosis and band heterotopias
