Ayurvedic Treatment of Focal Cortical Dysplasia

Introduction

Focal cortical dysplasia can be defined as an abnormal condition of the brain in which neurons fail to migrate to brain areas in the formation in utero and get deposited only in one brain region. Mainly, malformation in the left temporal cortical-subcortical region areas of the brain is observed. The word Focal means that it is limited to only a focal zone in the brain lobe.

Focal Cortical Dysplasia

Normally, neurons or brain cells get formed in organized cell layers which do the formation of the brain cortex (the outermost part of the brain). But in the condition of focal cortical dysplasia, the disorganization of the neurons or brain cells in a specific region of the brain can lead to the increased risk of seizures and interruption in the normal functioning of the brain.

Types of Seizures Seen in FCD Patients

The disease focal cortical dysplasia is associated with a variety of seizures depending upon the affected area of the brain in which the abnormal brain cells are present and also get affected by the patient’s age.

The most common type of seizures in this disease is focal-onset seizures which may get developed to generalized tonic-clonic activity. The affected region of the brain can be estimated by initial symptoms of the focal seizure. Infantile spasms can also be seen more frequently in the young children.

Causes

The cause behind the Focal cortical dysplasia or malformation of cortical development can be the genetic mutation occurring in the utero which further lead to the formation of disordered layers of the neurons in the cerebral cortex. Several genetic factors are supposed to play a crucial role in some cases but genes such as DEPDC5 may result in focal cortical dysplasia in many family generations. Usually, these changes can be seen in the advanced changes in the brain maturation which describes the limitation of these changes in a small region only. In some cases, infection in utero can also develop the focal cortical dysplasia whereas in rare cases, causes remain unknown.

Diagnosis

The diagnosis of the focal cortical dysplasia can be done by the physical examination and detailed medical history of the patient. The doctor will observe the signs and symptoms of the patient to detect focal cortical dysplasia. The doctor may also recommend electroencephalogram (EEG) to see the slowing of the background activity in the affected brain region of the focal cortical dysplasia. In most of the cases, MRI is found to be abnormal, showing the irregular brain region. This helps in detection of FCD in the patients. But if both the EEG and MRI are normal, other tests may also recommend by the doctor such as MEG, SISCOM, or PET. These tests are helpful in detecting the specific brain region where the seizures arise but don’t provide information to distinguish between FCD and other causes of epilepsy.

Treatment

In modern science, there is no exact treatment of focal cortical dysplasia, several anti-seizure medications are given to the patient as first-line therapy. But only 10% patients get relief by these medicines as most of the FCD cases have drug-resistant seizures. Along with that, these medications are not considered as permanent treatment, patients will get relief only for the duration he is consuming those medicines. Many adverse effects are also observed in the body of the patients using these medicines. So, it is not a wise choice to treat the patient suffering through this disease by modern methods of treatment.
