Abstract

Dyke–Davidoff–Masson syndrome (DDMS) is an important cause of intractable and drug-resistant seizures. It has varied clinical presentation and distinct neuroimaging features. Here, we describe a male patient presented with recurrent generalized tonic–clonic seizures, and cognitive deficit and characteristic neuroimaging features of marked sulcal all ventricular prominence seen on left side suggestive of hemiatrophy associated with mild calvarial thickening with pneumatization of sinuses seen on left side with dilatation of left petrous edge which is suggestive of DDMS. Early institution of neuroimaging in patients with intractable epilepsy will make early diagnosis and better outcome.
