Abstract

Much has been reported regarding the technique of performing an awake craniotomy with cortical mapping for the functional cortex responsible for sensorimotor activity and language. However, documentation for mapping the visual cortex during an awake craniotomy with a description of its technical details is rare. The authors report the case of a patient who underwent an awake craniotomy with mapping of the visual cortex to remove a glioma situated in the left medial occipital lobe. The techniques that made such a mapping procedure possible are discussed.
