Aphasic status epilepticus after glioma resection: two case reports

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Aphasic status epilepticus (ASE) is a subtype of focal nonconvulsive status epilepticus, in which language disturbance is the only objective clinical manifestation. We present two cases of patients who experienced delayed onset of temporal aphasia after the removal of glioma at the language-dominant hemisphere. In both cases, arterial spin labeling was useful for diagnosis and antiepileptic drug was effective. ASE should be considered a cause of persistent aphasia after glioma resection at or near the language area.
