Тuber cinereum hamartoma (also known as hypothalamic hamartoma)
Tuber cinereum hamartoma also known as hypothalamic hamartoma is benign non-neoplastic heterotopias in the brain that typically occur in the region of the hypothalamus, arising from the tuber cinereum, a part of the hypothalamus located between the mammillary bodies and the optic chiasm. Symptoms often begin in early infancy and are progressive, often with general cognitive and functional disability. Lesions can cause gelastic seizures, visual problems, early onset of puberty and behavioral problems [3, 6].
