Exacerbation of vocal tics after temporal lobectomy.
We describe a woman with intractable temporal lobe epilepsy secondary to dysgenesis of the left temporal lobe who had a marked and long-term exacerbation of her preexisting vocal tics after a temporal lobectomy that completely controlled her seizures. The patient was determined to have right-sided speech dominance by the Wada test. This is, to our knowledge, only the second reported case of exacerbation of tics after resection of the nondominant temporal lobe.
