The localizing language and memory in intractable
epilepsy has become increasingly elucidated. We describe
semantic noun naming and complex scene working memory
dysfunction in a right-handed patient using functional
MRI and define clinical correlation with functional
imaging. A 10-year-old right-handed girl with
Rasmussens syndrome was referred to our institute.
Intractable seizures may need to be treated with surgery
if the seizure control in the patient is not achieved
with medications. Although surgical resection is
successful in curing up to 70% of patients, a
significant risk of post-operative cognitive decline
continues to limit its application. Functional MRI was
used to observe the role of language and memory function
in this patient.
