Can you survive cortical dysplasia?

Yes: Cortical dysplasia refers to a congenital (present at birth) abnormality in the brain’s development. As the brain naturally develops in utero, neurons migrate outward to the cerebral cortex. Should these neurons fail to spread out and position correctly, the signals will misfire – triggering a seizure. Anti-seizure meds can be used to help patients. How this affects a patient is quite variable. ...Read more

Do all people with cortical dysplasia have seizures and other problems i never had seizures and vision is 20\20 condition found due to 24\7 headaches

Do all people with cortical dysplasia have seizures and other problems  i never had seizures and vision is 20\20 condition found due to 24\7 headaches

No, not all: Not all people with cortical dysplasia have seizures. This finding is typically made when a person has seizures, it does not cause symptoms many other times. Cortical dysplasia tends not to affect vision or be related to headaches, for example. Sometimes cortical dysplasia is found on brain MRI, but it may have no clinical significance. ...Read more

Doctors thought i had a brain tumor, A.D.E.M., and now cortical dysplasia is there a chance that this could still be a brain tumor?

Doctors thought i had a brain tumor, A.D.E.M., and now cortical dysplasia is there a chance that this could still be a brain tumor?

Hard question!: This question is beyond the scope of what we can answer in this forum. It would require a medical consultation, with detailed history, review of your medical records and your actual MRI images. Public answers on HealthTap are not intended for individual treatment, prescription or diagnosis. A personal consultation can be obtained through HealthTap Concierge with me or another Board-Certified MD ...Read more

What is cortical dysplasia? i was diagnoised with it and it was origionally thought to be a brain tumor after several mri tests they said it was this

What is cortical dysplasia? i was diagnoised with it and it was origionally thought to be a brain tumor after several mri tests they said it was this

Born with it: Cortical dysplasia is when a small island of gray matter is out of place in the white matter layer of the brain, seen on MRI. It can be mistaken for a benign brain tumor. It happens during development of the brain, and usually causes no trouble. Rarely it can cause seizures, which can be treated with medicine. VERY rarely surgery is done to remove it if seizures are hard to control. ...Read more

Brain lesion. i was told it was a brain tumor, acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, and cortical dysplasia could it still be a brain tumor? thanks!

Brain lesion. i was told it was a brain tumor,  acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, and cortical dysplasia could it still be a brain tumor? thanks!

Huh?: Didn't you just answer your own question? Maybe I'm missing something but if the diagnosis actually IS ADEM (as I believe you are saying above) and if what you have is cortical dysplasia (unrelated to the ADEM) to boot then, neither of those 2 together nor separately are synonyms for brain tumor. Do you have imaging studies? That would solve the mystery? Questions? www.healthtap.com/drsaghafi ...Read more

My daughter had her first seizure. the mri showed a minor abnormality. If it is cortical dysplasia what is the likelihood of more seizures?

My daughter had her first seizure. the mri showed a minor abnormality. If it is cortical dysplasia what is the likelihood of more seizures?

Hard to say: One of the problems of all the modern imaging we have available is knowing what to do with the findings. A minor anomaly may be just that. Something unrelated and of no importance.EEG findings sometimes have a better correlation with future seizure activity. This is best explained by the doc who has access to all the data. ...Read more

Doctors thought it to be a brain tumor, ADEM, and now cortical dysplasia is it still possible for the mass to be a brain tumor? thanks!

Different: It should be obvious which one of these is which based on MRI characteristics. Sometimes a follow up study will help. It sounds like it is not a brain tumor if the other two are possibilities. More information is needed to make a better decision. ...Read more

Some suggestions: You could start with University Hospital in Aurora, but I think more surgical epilepsy experience is present at UCLA Hospital in California, Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Mn, Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, and of course, Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. No harm in acquiring several opinions via phone calls, first. This is a highly specialized area, and would take your time to find success. ...Read more

24/7 headache tried EVERYTHING even non med remidies prescription meds scan showed brain tumor but it was cortical dysplasia recommendations.

24/7 headache tried EVERYTHING even non med remidies prescription meds scan showed brain tumor but it was cortical dysplasia recommendations.

Really?: Did you ever have seizures, enlarged head, clumsiness, or lots of falls as a kid growing up? I find it hard to believe that a 24 year old is being first discovered as having cortical dysplasia because of 24/7 headaches. This condition is usually picked up in childhood. No specific treatment exists. If seizures are beyond control some patients get surgical resection. Get a 2nd opinion on the MRI ...Read more

If someone has had 4cryotherapy treatments, and 1leep procedure and still has recurrent dysplasia after pap smears, what treatment is there to expect?

It depends: What type of dysplasia do you have? If you have atypical glandular epithelium in endocervical glands, a leep may not be sufficient, and depending on the clinical situation, a more extensive resection may be needed. If squamous dysplasia (intraepithelial lesion), then foci of dysplasia may be in cervix or vaginal wall, and more extensive clinical evaluation and follow up could be an option. ...Read more
