CT scan of 13 patients with adult onset of seizures who were neurologically intact and otherwise asymptomatic revealed a supratentorial mass in all. Significant EEG abnormalities were recorded in five, and the isotope brain scan was positive in eight. In three patients, both studies were normal. Angiograms confirmed the location of tumor, and histology was established following craniotomy. The value of the CT scan as a screening test for detecting brain tumor in this group of seizure patients is evident.
