Temozolomide treatment of refractory epilepsy in a patient with an oligodendroglioma
EPILEPSIA. 2006 Jul;47(7) :1237-1238
Back to previous list
A 40-year-old man with a left frontotemporal grade II oligodendroglioma developed seizures that were refractory to 14 antiepileptic medications, the ketogenic diet, and epilepsy surgery. With temozolomide therapy, his seizure frequency gradually changed from 30 partial seizures per day to a single simple partial seizure in 6 months. No additional therapeutic measures were introduced during this time. This reduction in seizure frequency appears attributable solely to temozolomide therapy.
