Dyke-Davidoff-Masson Syndrome: A Rare Cause of Refractory Epilepsy with Cerebral Infarction.
Abstract: Refractory epilepsy is not very uncommon in recent time. Dyke-Davidoff-Mason syndrome is one of the rare causes of refractory epilepsy. Here is a report of this rare case we have come across during treatment of refractory epilepsy in a 30 yr old man who presented with Generalised Tonic Clonic Seizures, Hemiparesis of the left hand and leg with deformity of the right upper limb and right lower limb and also deviation of the mouth to left. The Dyke-Davidoff-Masson syndrome (DDMS) was initially described as changes in the skull seen on skull X-ray in patients with cerebral hemi-atrophy, but is now applied more broadly to cross-sectional imaging also.
