|Title:||Gangliocytoma, A Surgically Treatable Cause Of Drug Resistant Early Onset Partial Epilepsy|
De Oliveira E.
|Abstract:||A 20-year-old girl had sensory and motor simple partial seizures in the right leg that began at the age of 4 years. Seizures occurred once a week and were refractory to antiepileptic drugs. Generalizations were infrequent. Interictal EEGs showed centro-parietal spikes. Ictal EEG recordings showed diffuse theta rhythmic activity without lateralization in parasagital regions. MRI revealed a lesion in the left medial parietal lobe, isointense to gray matter in T1-weighted and hyperintense in T2-weighted sequences. Complete surgical resection of the lesion guided by electrocorticography was performed. Pathology disclosed a gangliocytoma, an infrequent, surgically treatable cause of drug resistant early onset partial epilepsy.|
