Abstract

Bye et al. first described pathological findings in a patient with CD, bilateral occipital calcifications and drug resistant epilepsy who became seizure-free after extensive occipital resection. We report a case with a similar anatomo-clinical picture in whom surgical removal of the circumscribed lesion was ineffective and epilepsy worsened until a gluten-free diet was started. The poor surgical outcome may have been due to residual epileptogenic tissue or to an uninvestigated secondary epileptic temporal focus. Our observation confirms that a gluten-free diet is mandatory in epileptic patients with suspected CD.
