Awake-craniotomy (AC) allows maximum tumour resection while reducing the risk of permanent postoperative neurological deficits without compromising the outcomes of the treatment.

However, there is a scarcity of data suggesting actual association of any neuropsychiatric conditions after AC. Therefore, we sought to review the neuropsychiatric conditions post awake craniotomy.
