Hi Noha!
welcome to matter heterotopia is a developmental anomaly in which grey matter of the brain is situated wrongly.Treatment is aimed at reducing the seizures associated with the abnormality.n general, gray matter heterotopia is fixed in both its occurrence and symptoms; that is, once symptoms occur, it does not tend to progress. Varying results from surgical resection of the affected area have been reported. Although such surgery cannot reverse developmental disabilities, it may provides full or partial relief from seizures.Take care.
