Objectives: Epilepsy is characterized as a tendency towards recurrent seizures and it is a significant health problem in the world and one of the most common severe neurologic disorders among children. This study aims to evaluate the outcome of magnetic resonance imaging in determining the etiology in patients with refractory epilepsy and to reveal pathologies that may have the potential to be treated with methods, such as epileptic surgery.
