In 1999, Tahir et. al. developed the Fuzzy Topographic Topological Mapping to determine the location of epileptic foci in epilepsy disorder patients.  The model which consists of topological and fuzzy structure is composed into three mathematical algorithms.  There are two FTTMs up to now, namely FTTM version 1 and FTTM version 2.   FTTM version 1 is homeomorphic to FTTM version 2.  The homeomorphism of FTTM can be presented using graphs.  In this paper, we generalized  the graph of FTTM. In other words, we will prove that, if there exist k versions of FTTM, the new elements will produce a graph of degree 8k3+8k-24.
