Over a median follow-up period of 8 years, tumor recurrence was identified in only 3% of 184 patients with supratentorial gangliogliomas.

Tumor location within the temporal lobe, complete resection of the lesion, and chronic seizures were additional parameters that predicted a favorable outcome after neurosurgical therapy.
