C P Panayiotopoulos – 1st expert on this subject based on the ideXlab platform

  • posterior Agyria pachygyria with polymicrogyria evidence for an inherited neuronal migration disorder
    Neurology, 1995
    Co-Authors: C D Ferrie, Graeme D Jackson, S Giannakodimos, C P Panayiotopoulos

    Abstract:

    Article abstract-We describe two brothers with mental retardation and refractory epilepsy. MRI revealed symmetrical Agyria-pachygyria of the temporo-occipito-parietal regions, areas of deeply infolded polymicrogyric parietal cortex, and dilated occipital horns (colpocephaly). The stereotyped clinical, EEG, and MRI findings suggest that this may be a distinct inherited condition and imply that Agyria-pachygyria with polymicrogyria is not always sporadic.

Jean Aicardi – 2nd expert on this subject based on the ideXlab platform

  • the Agyria pachygyria complex a spectrum of cortical malformations
    Brain & Development, 1991
    Co-Authors: Jean Aicardi

    Abstract:

    Agyria-pachygyria is a relatively common brain malformation in humans as shown by the recent experience with CT scan and MR imaging. However, the specificity of imaging is not completely established and it is not known whether all cases with a thick cortical ribbon and a smooth surface correspond histologically to actual Agyria-pachygyria or may belong to different pathological anomalies such as polymicrogyria. The extent, distribution and detailed structure of Agyriapachygyria vary widely and the clinical features are accordingly very diverse. Rather than one entity, pachygyric cortical abnormalities form a broad spectrum that raises different clinical, nosological and genetic problems. Therefore, a precise analysis of each case is necessary to establish the prognosis and risk of recurrence.
