Dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumor (DNT) was first characterized in 1988 by Daumas-Duport and Scheithauer [1], who described 39 cases in children with morphologically distinct brain tumors. Partial complex seizures (PCSs), well-defined neuroimages, and typical pathologic findings were characteristic. Surgical resection of the tumor was usually curative. We present a new case of a child with PCSs who was diagnosed and treated for DNT. The clinical presentation and the difficulties of the differential diagnosis are discussed.
