A 20 years old male patient was admitted in status epilepticus. He had history convulsions, mental retardation and left hemiparesis since childhood. CT of head showed atrophy of the entire right hemisphere [Figure. 1] with compensatory ipsilateral skull thickening and paranasal and mastoid sinus enlargement along with widening of diploic space [Figure. 2]. There was ipsilateral midline structural shift, ventricular dilatation [Figure. 3] and sulcal enlargement. These findings suggest infantile type of cerebral hemi-atrophy in contrast to adult acquired cerebral hemi-atrophy which does not show enlargement of diploic space and paranasal sinus. This is supposed to be caused by intrauterine and perinatal carotid artery infarction leading to cerebral hemiatrophy and is known as Dyke Davidoff Masson syndrome.
