ABSTRACT: Cerebral hemi-atrophy with seizures, hemiplegia and mental retardation is uncommon clinical presentation in the early childhood and adolescence. The causes are various and usually grouped into congenital and acquired types. The Dyke-Davidoff-Masson Syndrome is one of the causes of these clinical manifestations, which is usually developed secondary to brain insult. Here we report two cases with similar symptoms- one case was an adult male of 35 years with long history of seizures and the second case was a young male of 22 years with cognitive impairment, difficulty in speech and walking.

KEYWORDS: DDMS-Dyke Davidoff Masson Syndrome, Cerebral hemi-atrophy, MRI-Magnetic Resonance Imaging, CT-Computerized Tomography
