Summary:

There are few more distressing problems for patients and families than the development of a primary or secondary brain tumour.  Treatment is often palliative through intensive, from the start.  Little firm evidence exists to guide the physician in caring for patients with seizures refractory to standard treatment.  Most of the work is based on case reports or personal experience.
