DELGADO, Jose C et al. Report of the first case of lobectomy for the treatment of refractory temporal lobe epilepsy in Peru. Rev Neuropsiquiatr [online]. 2017, vol.80, n.2, pp.151-454. ISSN 0034-8597.

The case of a female patient with the diagnosis of refractory temporal lobe epilepsy due to mesial temporal sclerosis is presented. She underwent temporal lobectomy, the first intervention of this type performed in Peru. The outcome has been successful, as the patient remains seizure-free four years into her post-surgical period. The implications of what may be considered a landmark in the history of neurology and neurosurgery in Peru are commented upon.

Keywords : Temporal lobe epilepsy; general surgery; sclerosis.
