AbstractLeft-right orientation, a function related to the parietal lobe, is important for many daily activities. Here, we describe a left-handed patient with a right parietal brain tumour. During awake surgery, electric stimulation of the right inferior parietal lobe resulted in mistakes in his left-right orientation. Postoperatively our patient had no problems in discriminating left right. This case report shows that monitoring of left-right orientation during awake brain tumour surgery is feasible so that this function can be preserved.
