Background/aim: In the treatment of epilepsy, encouraging results have been achieved with surgical treatment, especially for temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). Drug resistance must be diagnosed as early as possible, because the ensuing seizures can be eliminated surgically via temporal lobe surgery in a high percentage (70%-90%) of patients. In this study we share our experience, in a single institution, of surgical treatment of intractable TLE.
