© 2020, The Author(s). This article reports about a 30-year-old male patient who had suffered from a focal epilepsy with epigastric auras, unaware seizures and rarely bilateral tonic clonic seizures due to hippocampal sclerosis since the age of 21 years. The patient was offered the standard anterior temporal lobe resection and alternatively stereotactic laser thermal ablation, which recently received approval with the European CE mark. The patient opted for stereotactic laser ablation because of its less invasive nature compared to standard craniotomy and resection. This article reports the clinical course over a 9-month follow-up period. Additionally, the method and the results of a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) memory examination are summarized.
