Radiologist report says bilateral gliosis posterior frontal lobe. Where is the posterior frontal lobe located and can it cause my nocturnal seizures. ?

Radiologist report says bilateral gliosis posterior frontal lobe. Where is the posterior frontal lobe located and can it cause my nocturnal seizures. ?

The frontal lobes: Occupy about the front half of the top part of the brain, called the cerebrum. The posterior area would be towards the back - just in front and above the ear - see attached image - the back part of the pink area. Gliosis is like scar tissue in the brain, and could cause seizures. Please discuss this with your neurologist and correlate with eeg and other test results. ...Read more

Are sparkles in vision a symptom of brain tumor? Why? Is it due to pressure in optic nerve or chiasm? Or occipital lobe or parietal lobe pressure.

Are sparkles in vision a symptom of brain tumor? Why? Is it due to pressure in optic nerve or chiasm? Or occipital lobe or parietal lobe pressure.

No.: None of the structures you mentioned would cause sparkles in the vision. Scotomas are benign as long as they aren't persistent, they can be due to onset migraines, associated with headaches or happen for no reason. If they come on and stay and get worse for several days then we worry about retinal/vitreous detachment. ...Read more
