Abstract

Hemimegalencephaly is a rare congenital malformation characterized by the overgrowth of one hemisphere generally associated with mental retardation and severe epilepsy. Indeed the clinical features of this particular syndrome are more various than is generally believed. We describe a patient, with hemimegalencephaly, whose neurological and neuropsychological conditions are normal despite the malformation, and who had, as the only neurological disfunction, rare partial seizures promptly controlled by drugs.
