He was otherwise normal and his developmental milestones were normal for age. The CT showed enlarged subarachnoid spaces in the frontal and temporal lobes (figure 1). A chronic subdural(More)
Cortical 'clefts' (schizencephaly) and cortical 'bumps' (polymicrogyria) are malformations arising due to defects in postmigrational development of neurons. They are frequently encountered together, with schizencephalic clefts being lined by polymicrogyria. We present the case of an eight-year-old boy who presented with seizures. Imaging revealed closed lip(More)

However, he continued to have left focal seizures. An MRI was performed showing diffuse T2 hyperintensity, oedema and high signal on diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) with(More)
