4 patients suffering from neurofibromatosis and epilepsy with onset in the first year of life underwent MRI. In 3 cases partial motor seizures and/or asymmetrical infantile spasms had appeared before 3 months of age. Awake EEG demonstrated focal or multifocal spikes or slow-waves; the abnormalities were diffuse during sleep. MRI disclosed areas of T2 hyperintense signal, mainly localized in temporal or occipital white matter. A correlation between clinical patterns and the topography of EEG and MRI abnormalities was found.
