This study investigated the cortical morphological changes of drug-naïve Benign childhood epilepsy with centrotemporal spikes (BECTS) using three-dimensional T1- weighted images(3D-T1WI) and explored the possible influence of cortical morphological changes on cognition.The results revealed aberrant morphology in thickness, gyrification and fractal dimension, in addition to Rolandic region. Cortical gyrification of right parahippocampal gyrus in BECTS may indirectly reflect the degree of language transmission damage or the result of contralateral compensation.
