Proteus Syndrome with Neurological Manifestations: A Rare Presentation
A 7-year-old boy who presented with seizures and overgrowth of one-half of the body is presented, and early detection of association of epilepsy and hemimegalencephaly with PS can prevent/minimize the neurological complications, disability, morbidity, and mortality.
Hemispherectomy Procedure in Proteus Syndrome
A 1-month-old male baby referred to Pediatric Neurology Clinic Soetomo Hospital, Surabaya, Indonesia in 2014 presented recurrent seizures since birth with asymmetric dysmorphic face with the right side larger than the left, subcutaneous mass and linear nevi, and the seizure then was resolved after hemispherectomy procedure.

A role of current MRI-regimes in the diagnosis, the management of patients and prognosis of the course of CD are highlighted and a spectrum of clinical symptoms of CD with epileptic seizures is discussed in details.
Neurological manifestations of Proteus syndrome – review of the literature.
The neurological manifestations of Proteus syndrome are frequent and important hallmark of the disease, and the awareness of them among neurologists may increase efficacy of the syndrome management.
Congenital infiltrating lipomatosis of the face: recognition and pathogenesis.
In the case of CILF, the source of this selective and focal lesion in the cheek has been ascribed to the buccal fat pad, initially described as a distinct anatomic structure of the face by Heister in 17275 and further delineated histologically as adipose tissue by Bichat in 1801.
The identification and recognition of specific characteristics of the disease, pathophysiology, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and necessity of advanced diagnosis, effective generalized and personalized therapy as well as the requirement of new drugs for the management of Proteus syndrome are concentrated on.


The radiological features of hemimegalencephaly including three cases associated with proteus syndrome.
There was a high incidence of other brain anomalies, including hypoplasia of the corpus callosum and crus cerebri, grey and white matter calcification and cortical migration/organisational disorders, in children with hemimegalencephaly.
The Proteus syndrome: CNS manifestations.
A case in which severe, evolving CNS abnormalities were also exhibited, and dural sinus thrombosis developed, is presented in which Proteus syndrome should be considered in the differential diagnosis.
Proteus syndrome: a newly recognized hamartomatous syndrome with significant craniofacial dysmorphology.
Proteus syndrome, a new disorder describing multiple hamartomas distinct from neurofibromatosis and Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome, is presented and discussed along with a review of the pertinent literature.

Syndromes with lissencephaly.
In his detailed analysis in 1984/85, Dobyns categorised lissencephaly into different pathological types, assigned these to previously described cases or syndromes, and discussed possible genetic mechanisms.
