Abstract: This is a report of a 55‐year‐old woman with a 6‐year history of uncontrollable complex partial seizure and severe delusion. A computed tomography (CT) brain scan showed a nonenhanced low density area with an ill‐defined mass located at the right frontal lobe. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) demonstrated an area of hyperintensity on T2‐weighted images. After a tumorectomy, the patient gradually recovered from the seizures and delusion. A histological diagnosis showed a mixed oligoastrocytoma or dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumor (DNT). The clinical and pathological features of the tumor as well as its relation to psychosis were discussed.
