The incorporation of the laser into the neurosurgical armamentarium was surprisingly late in comparison to its use in other precise fields, such as ophthalmology and otolaryngology. Since its arrival, however, a veritable revolution in neurological surgery has taken place. The uses of this instrument, present and future, are discussed in their historical perspective. The author proposes an "ideal" laser for neurosurgery.
