Synopsis: 
The most common pathology in all age groups that caused epilepsy in children was the indication of parenchymal damage. Another common pathology is hippocampal sclerosis and cortical developmental abnormalities. MRI is a noninvasive imaging modality that can be used to identify pathologies that do not involve any ionizing radiation and lead to epileptic attacks in childhood.

ABSTRACT

Objective: We aimed to retrospectively analyze the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) observations and the distribution of etiological factors according to age groups in cases with MRI examinations for an epilepsy diagnosis.

Methods: The brain MRI of 606 cases from the 0–17 years age group were analyzed retrospectively, and the findings were evaluated according to the age group.
