The purpose

Brain somatic mutations in genes belonging to the mTOR pathway are well recognized in malformations of the cortical development, such as focal cortical dysplasia or hemimegalencephaly. The present study aims to search for brain somatic mutations in paired blood-brain samples from children undergoing epilepsy surgery at the Rothschild Foundation, Paris. Patients and their parents will be recruited to identify genetic abnormalities both in lymphocytic and cortical DNA.

Provided treatments

  • Genetic: Sequencing of paired blood-brain DNA samples
