Inquest into the death of Sebastian Nicholas Pelle

3. Mr Pelle lived with his parents in Canberra. He was a generally fit and well young man.\r\n4. On 3 April 2015 Mr Pelle saw a dentist. A gum swelling on his right side, indicative of infective process, was identified although no dental abscess was observed.\r\n5. In August 2015 Mr Pelle started to complain of headaches. On 8 November 2015 Mr Pelle had a seizure and became unconscious. He was taken to The Canberra Hospital (TCH) by ambulance, where he underwent emergency surgery to remove a lesion on his frontal lobe 50x20x19 mm in size. An examination of the cyst found that it was benign, but Mr Pelle was recommended to have regular screening tests to check on possible regrowth of the cyst and prescribed a short course of anticonvulsant medication. The first few screening tests returned negative results.\r\n6. On New Years Day in 2016 Mr Pelle suffered another seizure while in Sydney and he was admitted to St Vincent’s Hospital. Mr Pelle was released with instructions to continue taking his anticonvulsant medication. A subsequent MRI on 7 April 2016 showed no further growth of the lesion.
