Abstract
Dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumor (DNET) is a distinct type of low-grade glioneuronal tumor. Clinically, DNET is highly associated with intractable epilepsy in young children and adolescents. Therefore, the burden of the tumor comprises oncological concerns (recurrence), seizure control, and quality of life. The pathology of DNET is characterized by glioneuronal elements and floating neurons. Grossly, many DNETs harbor separate nodules on the medial side of the mass. Some of the satellite lesions are bone fide tumor nodules that grow during the follow-up. Therefore, removing all satellite lesions may be important to prevent tumor progression. Seizure control is highly dependent on the complete removal of tumors, and the presence of satellite lesions also exerts a negative impact on seizure outcomes.
