Abstract

We report the results of a long clinical, neurophysiological and neuroradiological study in a young adult affected by epilepsia partialis continua. After a 14 year interval of apparently normal neuroradiological findings, MRI of the brain showed progressive cortical hemiatrophy, which paralleled contralateral cerebellar hemiatrophy, compatible with an involvement of the cortico-ponto-cerebellar pathways. In this patient extensive search for any etiological factor (including mitochondrial and autoimmune pathology) gave normal findings.
