Abstract

Though brain hemiatrophy is not among the leading causes of symptomatic epilepsy; the problem remains important and is of great practical interest to neurologists and neurosurgeons in Russia. In this article; we present an example of successful surgical treatment of Dyke-Davidoff-Masson syndrome. Here; functional hemispherotomy was performed in a 22 years old female patient; as a result; the occurrence and intensity of epileptic seizures decreased. This clinical case provides hope for this procedure to show even better results if performed in early childhood.
