Rasmussen encephalopathy is an acquired, progressive disease of childhood, characterized by intractable focal seizures, hemiparesis, contralateral cerebral atrophy. EEG characteristics are: focal slow activity, impoverishment of background, late diffuse epileptiform discharges. MR imaging shows a progressive atrophy of the hemisphere contralateral to the side of partial motor seizures. Clinical and EEG characteristics are precociously suggestive of Rasmussen encephalopathy.
