Abstract

A new case of gelastic epilepsy and precocious puberty due to hypothalamic hamartoma is reported. After long-term medical treatment there was no observable neurological or endocrinological improvement and the clinical outcome was poor. The authors consider that early surgery for hamartoma should be reconsidered.
