Abstract

In the period comprised from November 1979 to April 1988 we observed 18 patients operated on for cerebral ganglioglioma in our Institute. In 16 cases the onset symptom was a seizure. The pattern was that of complex partial or simple partial seizures, in 7 cases evolving to secondary generalisation. In 8 cases the interval between the first seizure and surgery didn't last more than 4 years, in the other 8 cases it ranged from 5 to 40 years. In 11 patients seizures set on before the age of 15, in 3 of them they appeared in the first year of life. Epilepsy course seemed to have an unfavourable course in most patients while it appeared positively influenced by surgery.
