Case series of hypothalamic hamartoma-epilepsy syndrome in adults

Takeaway

  • A case series of hypothalamic hamartomas (HH) in adulthood documents heterogeneity in clinical manifestations such as different types of seizures, endocrinological disturbances, and psychiatric comorbidities.

Why this matters

    Manifestations of this rare condition are just as varied in adults as they are in children, and since outcomes of therapeutic interventions may be poorer at this stage this study highlights the importance of improving our understanding of this condition to aid diagnosis.
