Abstract

The authors studied prognostic factors for surgical treatment in 22 patients with intractable postencephalitic epilepsy. A small subgroup of patients (9/22) had a positive outcome after resective surgery. They had a higher functional level after encephalitis as measured by Glasgow Outcome Score, a longer time interval between encephalitis and onset of seizures, and localization of ictal EEG to one temporal lobe. The other patients had devastating seizures with poor outcome after surgery.
