|Issue Date:||Jun-2006||Citation:||Parmar, H., Lim, S.-H., Tan, N.C.K., Lim, C.C.T. (2006-06). Acute symptomatic seizures and hippocampus damage: DWI and MRS findings. Neurology 66 (11) : 1732-1735. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1212/01.wnl.0000218207.18707.f4||Abstract:||The authors describe diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) changes in the hippocampus within 48 hours of acute symptomatic seizures or status epilepticus in 12 patients. DWI showed increased signal and a decreased apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) in all patients, with corresponding lactate detected on MRS in six patients and EEG seizure activity in nine patients. On follow-up, the atrophic hippocampus had an increased ADC in six patients. DWI and MRS may predict development of hippocampal sclerosis.
