Abstract

Frontal lobe epilepsy has been better understood during the past two decades with the advent of technologies with improved localizing capabilities. Major technological advances in the ability to delineate structural and functional brain regions have led to a resurgence of interest in epilepsy surgery. Neuroimaging modalities have broadened the scope of what are now considered surgically remediable syndromes. In the following article, we attempt to review the current concepts regarding diagnosis and surgical management of frontal lobe epilepsy.
