Abstract

The present study reports, for the first time, a rare case of benign childhood focal epilepsy(BCFE) coexisting with lesional epilepsy secondary to parietooccipital ulegyria. The patient underwent right parietooccipital lobe disconnection plus tailored resection of temporooccipitoparietal junction cortex under electrocorticography (ECoG) monitoring. Post-operatively, there was no impairment of neurological function and the patient only experiences a few breakthrough benign partial seizures during sleep.
