Fifteen patients with generalized convulsive seizures as the sole clinical sign of brain tumor were studied. The expanding lesion involved the frontal lobe in 14 cases and was benign in 12 cases. The patients mainly differed from 30 control cases with cryptogenetic generalized convulsive seizures for the late onset of the seizures, the occurrence of inaugural or early status epilepticus, the lack of awakening seizures, the absence of generalized spike and wave discharges on the EEG during evolution. The existence of brain tumor in a patient with generalized convulsive seizures becomes more probable whether such features are found in association.
