Abstract: Dyke-Davidoff-Masson syndrome (DDMS) is a rare neurological disorder that results from brain injury in intrauterine or early years of life. Prominent cortical sulci, dilated lateral ventricles, cerebral hemiatrophy, hyperpneumatization of the frontal sinus, and compensatory hypertrophy of the skull are the characteristic findings. We describe a male patient who presented with generalized tonic-clonic seizure and left-sided body weakness and neuroimaging findings of cerebral hemiatrophy, dilatation of lateral ventricle, frontal sinus hyperpneumatization, and asymmetric calvarial thickening. Knowledge of its features on imaging enables timely and accurate diagnosis, allowing appropriate management.
Summary: In our patient from past history ,blood investigatin and MRI report we can conclude that this is a case of DYKE DAVIDOFF MASSON SYNDROME.
