We present two cases of this uncommon condition and discuss its imaging features, differential diagnosis, treatment options and prognosis. Case report Case 1 An 8-year-old male child presented with complaints of focal seizures, characterized by brief episodic movements of right side of body after which child regains consciousness.
This started approximately at 1 year of age. The frequency of convulsions increased gradually and more so in the last four months. There was history of speech and language delay as well. His birth history and family history was unremarkable. On examination, patient had spastic hemiparesis on the right side. Treatment history revealed consulting local medical practitioner and patient was on carbamazepine. However, patient had stopped responding recently.
Features were suggestive of Dyke-Davidoff-Masson syndrome. Other antiepileptic drugs were added in his medication and he almost became seizure free. He was advised speech therapy too and was kept on regular follow-ups.
Abstract Background Dyke-Davidoff-Masson syndrome is a rare condition of unknown frequency resulting from brain injury due to a multitude of causes; especially in early life. Case presentation We present a case of a year-old girl who initially presented with headaches, followed by episodic complex-partial seizures; which was controlled via medication. She also had right sided hemiparesis. Computed tomography CT showed evidence of left parieto-temporal infarct with cerebral atrophy.
