Abstract: This is a preliminary report of the quality of life of 9 people, 5 men and 4 women, in Hong Kong who underwent temporal lobectomy for seizure control. The Chinese version of World Health Organization Quality of Life Measure Abbreviated Version, validated in Hong Kong, was used as the outcome measure. Analysis suggested that the quality of life of these participants after successful temporal lobectomy was poorer than that of 157 healthy controls in the physical and psychological domains as measured. This suggests that other factors in addition to achieving complete seizure control play significant roles in promoting the quality of life of such patients.
