gutartiger Hirntumor

taken from: U. Altrup, U. Specht: Informationstafeln Epilepsie. Novartis Pharma Verlag 1997

The MRT image shows a benign brain tumour which stands out in a lighter colour against the healthy tissue (see arrow).

Such tumours can cause epileptic seizures.

Most patients become seizure free after the tumour has been removed.
