We report a 7-year-8-month-old girl affected by hypomelanosis of Ito. She presents a partial symptomatic drug-resistant epilepsy since the age of 4 months. Seizures were reduced in frequency by an add-on therapy with vigabatrin. In addition to the typical neurological signs of hypomelanosis of Ito, our patient shows choreoathetoid movements of the left arm, and enlargement of the head of the right caudate nucleus at the CT-scan and MRI.
