Disease definition

Ganglioglioma is a rare, usually benign, well-circumscribed, often cystic, mixed neuronal-glial tumor (composed of both neoplastic glial and ganglionic elements) which is typically located in the temporal lobe and rarely invades the surrounding tissue. Patients usually present with seizures refractory to medical treatment. Association with neurofibromatosis type I and tuberous sclerosis has been reported.
