Abstract

We report two children with hemisomatic spasms caused by neoplastic lesions in the region of the ipsilateral cerebellopontine angle. In this condition, seizure misdiagnoses are frequent and EEGs are normal, even ictally. MRI should be performed early to prevent delay of appropriate treatment.
