Abstract :

Tumors characteristically presenting with drug-resistant seizures are termed as LEATs. LEATs are more common in the temporal lobe, occur predominantly in paediatric age and focal neurological deficits are rare. There are few reported studies focusing exclusively on LEATs. In our article, we aim to highlight our surgical experience in terms of seizure outcome among LEATs and discuss the factors affecting outcome. Methodology: We have retrospectively analysed all the operated cases of intra-axial brain tumors with seizures (2015 to 2019). The clinical and radiographic data was collected from the hospital record system. For comparison, two groups were made [Group 1 with good seizure control i.e. Engel 1; and Group 2 poor seizure outcome i.e. Engel 2 and 3].
