Fence-post catheter techniques are used to use tumor margins when resecting gliomas. In the present study, deep electrodes instead of catheters were used as fence-posts. The case of a 25-year-old female patient whose magnetic resonance images (MRI) revealed a tumor in the left cingulate gyrus is presented in this study. She underwent daily seizures without loss of consciousness under the administration of anti-seizure medications. Despite video electroencephalography (EEG) monitoring, the scalp inter-ictal EEG did not show obvious epileptiform discharges. We were consequently uncertain whether such frequent seizures were epileptic seizures or not. As a result, deep electrodes were used as fence-posts: three deep electrodes were inserted into the tumor’s anterior, lateral, and posterior margins using a navigation-guided method. The highest epileptic discharge was detected from the anterior deep electrode. As a result, ahead of the tumor was extendedly resected, and epileptic discharges were eliminated using EEG. The postoperative MRI revealed that the tumor was resected. The patient has never experienced seizures after the surgery. In conclusion, when supratentorial gliomas complicated by frequent seizures are resected, intraoperative EEG monitoring using deep electrodes as fence-posts is useful for estimating epileptogenic areas.
