Cases with unilateral involvement are presented in the upper row (from left to right: left temporal, left insular, left fronto-orbital), whereas cases with extensive bilateral involvement are presented in the lower row.

Figure 2

Neuroradiological findings of a patient with refractory epilepsy following HSV (herpes-simplex-virus) encephalitis before (A, B) and after (C, D) epilepsy surgery. The patient achieved seizure freedom after a right temporal resection with posterior disconnection and a circumscribed basal frontal resection (images from Weber et al., 2014).
