Recent findings indicate that Panic Disorders can be caused in some cases by a biological dysfunction of the temporal lobe. We report the case of a 38 y.o. man as an example of the difficulty in distinguishing between a 'pure' psychiatric disorder and the ictal symptoms of epilepsy. This is the second report of Panic Disorder due to a meningioma and the first one with localization of the lesion involving the left temporal lobe.
