Abstract

Summary

Focal epilepsy can present with a rapidly progressing course of intractable epilepsy in children. We present a typical example of such a patient with focal seizures due to a frontal lobe cortical lesion of developmental origin. MRI and SPECT revealed abnormalities in the right frontal lobe. Surgical resection resulted in excellent outcome.
