Abstract

In paediatric age epileptologist and neurosurgeon are often involved in the treatment of the epilepsy secondary to brain lesions.Cases series observed in the period from 1 jan 04 to 31 dec 07 was reviewed: 72 cases, 38 males, aged <3 yrs in 19, from 3 to 12 in 43 and > 12 in 10. Tumors 23 (gangliogloma 6, DNET 3, glial 3, other 11) cortical dysplasia 18 (25%), tuberous sclerosis 7 (10%), other cortical malformations 7. Surgical intervention in 28 (23 for tumors). Epilepsy evolution: remission 45 (55.5%), severe epilepsy 19 (26%). Outcome much more favourable in operated cases (82% seizures free) compared not operated (remission only 41%). Moreover epilepsy secondary to brain tumours shows a good outcome (83%). But 30% of cases with cortical dysplasia are controlled with AED.
