Abstract

  Polymicrogyria (PMG) is a malformation of cortical development disorder characterized by excessive small and prominent convolutions separated by shallow sulci, giving the cortical surface and cortical–white matter junction an irregular appearance. We present a case of 13 year boy with history of generalised tonic clonic seizures since birth and MRI brain showed the three characteristics findings of PMG i.e. abnormal gyral pattern, increased cortical thickness, and irregularity of the cortical-white matter junction due to packing of microgyri. Purpose of this case presentation is to present a rare entity liable to missed on routine scan which is important cause of seizures in children and young adults.
