Purpose: An elevated level of S-100B in serum is generally considered to be a biochemical marker of nervous tissue damage. According to our knowledge, no studies have evaluated the serum S-100B protein concentration in children with temporal lobe epilepsy. The objective of this study was to measure the serum levels of S-100B protein in pediatric cases with temporal epilepsy.
