Abstract

Although temporal lobectomy has become well established in the treatment of unilateral epileptogenic lesions (Penfield and Jasper 13, Falconer 6, Crandall 5. Patients with bitemporal epilepsy and with unverified temporal lobe foci have not had the option of surgical treatment available to patients with clearly unilateral temporal lobe seizure discharges.
