Nineteen patients with supratentorial cavernous angioma (10 frontal, 8 temporal and 3 occipital) and epilepsy are reported. As in previous reported cases the presence of usually intractable partial seizures and the rarity of clinical apparent bleeding are confirmed. Nevertheless inaugural apparently generalized seizures occurred in some cases and seizures were pharmacologically controlled in few patients. It is suggested that the diagnosis of lesional epilepsy may be difficult af the onset and surgery might not mandatory in the treatment of epileptic seizures.
