Abstract

We examined retrospectively 148 patients operated on for frontal lesions. About 50% of them presented with epilepsy, either with partial or with generalized seizures. Histology demonstrated the higher epileptogenicity of glial tumors and of non neoplastic lesions, as arteriovenous malformations. In patients with complete lesion resection and low grade gliomas no post-operative seizures occurred, while high post-operative seizure occurrence was found after partial resections, typical of malignant glial neoplasms.
