Abstract

Temporal epilepsy is one of the most common forms of epilepsy. This form of epilepsy is diagnosed in about 25% of all epileptic patients; around 30-40% of temporal epilepsy cases are drug-resistant. Since 1945-1955, both preoperative diagnosis and surgical treatment of temporal epilepsy have been consistently improving. Indications for surgery include drug-resistance, disease progression and a decline in patient’s quality of life. Surgical treatment of temporal epilepsy results in remission or essential decrease in the seizure incidence in 60 to 85% of patients. In this report, a female patient (35 years old) diagnosed with temporal epilepsy at the age of 2, is described in terms of preoperative diagnostic procedures and subsequent surgical treatment.
