Temporal lobe pathologies have often been associated with psychiatric symptoms. Left temporal lobe pathologies usually present with localizing neurological signs, however, right temporal lobe pathologies often go undetected.

Case presentation, inherent diagnostic dilemma, and innovative treatment methodology have been described.
