Medial Temporal Sclerosis

The withering and loss of neurons in the deepest part of the temporal lobe is known as mesial or medial temporal sclerosis (MTS).

Temporal lobectomy is the surgical treatment for MTS where the Neurosurgeons remove the portion of the brain identified as the source of the seizures in this treatment.
