Table 1 Summary of clinical variables for Rasmussen encephalitis (RE) and cortical dysplasia (CD) cohorts

From: Differential expression of interferon-γ and chemokine genes distinguishes Rasmussen encephalitis from cortical dysplasia and provides evidence for an early Th1 immune response

Clinical variable RE (n = 12) CD (n = 12) P value
Age at surgery (years) 9.9 ± 3.1 9.2 ± 3.6 P = 0.621a
Age at seizure onset (years) 6.4 ± 3.1 2.8 ± 2.4 P = 0.005 a
Time from onset to surgery (years) 3.5 ± 3.5 6.5 ± 3.3 P = 0.047 a
Number of AED pre-surgery 3 ± 1 3 ± 1 P = 0.248a
Side (Left/Right) 4/8 6/6 P = 0.408b
Gender (Female/Male) 5/7 8/4 P = 0.219b
T2 Index 2.5 0 P = 0.016 c
FLAIR Index 2 1 P = 0.003 c
