Bilateral frontoparietal polymicrogyria and epilepsy

Pediatr Neurol. 2000 Mar;22(3):240-3. doi: 10.1016/s0887-8994(99)00142-3.

Abstract

Two patients with bilateral frontoparietal polymicrogyria are reported. Severe developmental delay, mental retardation, spastic tetraplegia, and seizures were the main clinical features. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a bilateral thick cortex with irregular gyri and a festoonlike gray-white matter junction. Bilateral frontoparietal polymicrogyria may represent a further form of the bilateral polymicrogyria syndromes in addition to perisylvian and parasagittal parieto-occipital polymicrogyria.
