Brain Tumor-Related Epilepsy: Introduction and Overview

Marta Maschio, Herbert B. Newton

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Over the last years, we have been fortunate to witness remarkable progress in the research of brain tumor-related epilepsy (BTRE); as evidenced by the increasing number of articles and reviews published on the pathophysiological mechanisms, treatment approaches, and quality of life concerns related to this challenging pathology. There is still much to be done, however, because many questions still remain, for which there are no easy answers. Indeed, this pathology represents an on-going challenge for clinicians and continues to stimulate much debate and a fair share of controversy in the scientific community.Epilepsy and Brain Tumors is not only meant to be an update textbook of brain tumor-related epilepsy, but rather, a practical guide based on clinical experiences, as well as a comprehensive collection of presentations from international experts who will share some of the latest discoveries and their approaches to tackling a wide range of difficult issues related to BTRE.
