The authors examined the brain magnetic resonance imaging scans of two epilepsy patients who had temporal lobectomies, one on the right and one on the left, with postoperative symptoms of affective disorders. Degenerative changes of ipsilateral thalamus and putamen after surgery, with coincident affective disorder, were noted. The authors discuss a possible relationship between postlobectomy degeneration and depression.
