Article Abstract
Although the natural history of SWS is imperfectly known, increasing duration of seizures and of postictal deficits, increase in atrophy of calcified lesions or both, are indicative of its progressive nature. Despite the expected heterogene ity that renders formal comparison of the various approaches difficult, the current study provides new evidence to support early surgery in patients with SWS and drug-resistant epilepsy. The authors' results suggest that lesionectomy is a good approach, provided that the pial angioma is unilateral and the resection can be complete.
