Abstract

We report a series of 8 patients with ictal deja vu. Subdural strip electrocorticographic (ECoG) monitoring localized the ictal epileptogenic focus as follows: right (n = 6) and left (n = 2) mesiotemporal lobe. In all 8 patients, the left hemisphere was dominant for language function based on intracarotid amytal testing. In 6 right-handed patients, ictal deja vu was associated with a right temporal lobe focus. However, in the 2 left-handed patients, the ictal focus was left temporal lobe. Although ictal deja vu localizes the epileptic focus to temporal lobe, this experimental phenomenon appears to lateralize to the hemisphere nondominant for handedness.
