Resumen

LUCENA, J. et al. Lipoma of the corpus callosum with seizure which causes fatal alimentary aspiration. Cuad. med. forense [online]. 2004, n.37, pp.59-63. ISSN 1135-7606.

Lipomas of the corpus callosum make up approximately 5% of the tumours of the corpus callosum. Nowadays, they are considered congenital malformations rather than true neoplasms. They are usually asymptomatic; however they are sometimes associated with unspecific neurological symptoms such as psychomotor retardation, headache, epilepsy and cerebral palsy. A case is presented of a 42-year-old man who died due to alimentary aspiration following a seizure. Neuropathological study showed two lipomas located in the splenium of the corpus callosum. Also, we emphasise the importance of the anti-epileptic treatment in the corpus callosum lipomas which are associated with epilepsy.

Palabras clave : Epilepsy; corpus callosum lipoma; forensic pathology.
