Having recently completed a review on the same topic,1 we read the February 2008 article by Quigg and Barbaro2 with great interest. The techniques of radiosurgery are rapidly evolving and its role in the treatment of epilepsy is being defined. Quigg and Barbaro provide support to our own conclusions regarding the developing role for the use of radiosurgery to treat medication-refractory seizures arising from surgically challenging regions of the brain, such as hypothalamic hamartomas and select cases of temporal lobe epilepsy.
