Aims

Low-grade epilepsy-associated neuroepithelial tumours (LEATs) encompass the broad spectrum of tumours associated with epilepsy. Since the postsurgical seizure outcome in LEATs is favourable, it is speculated that epileptological presurgical evaluation (EPE) might not be required for patients with LEATs.
