The article focuses on a study of a 25-year-old man who had experienced complex partial seizures since childhood. The patient has undergone magnetic resonance imaging which showed hyperintensity of the right hippocampus with volume loss and characteristics of mesial temporal sclerosis. Moreover, it explains that complex partial seizures are common in temporal lobe epilepsy and often associated with sclerosis, particularly the hippocampus.

    The study aimed to investigate the volume of the olfactory bulb (OB) in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). Specifically, we wanted to see whether the olfactory deficit typically found in TLE patients also exerts a top-down influence on the OB. Twenty patients, and 20 age- and...
