Spontaneous temporal encephalocele. Case report.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

The authors report a 36-year-old woman with a 23-year history of simple and complex partial seizures who was treated surgically for an anteroinferior temporal encephalocele, with resolution of the seizure disorder. This patient's presentation, findings, and response to treatment are typical of those associated with anteroinferior temporal encephalocele, and different from the clinical patterns of four other types of spontaneous temporal encephalocele.
