The irreducible neuroaggressive disorder (IND) is a well-described entity known to be associated with impulsive and aggressive behavior. While various studies have assessed available pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatment regimens, patients with IND continue to pose a major threat to themselves and society. While targeted stereotactic therapy for IND has gained traction in recent years, there is a paucity of information describing comparative effectiveness of different validated anatomic regions. In this paper, we discuss the surgical results for patients with IND following targeted lesional therapy with a special focus on selection criteria and operative methods. The objective is to analyze the efficacy and safety of the different described targets for this disorder in pediatric patients.
