Agenesis of the corpus callosum is a cerebral malformation diagnosed by CT scan. Beside mental retardation, the most frequent clinical manifestation is epilepsy. In a personal study of 26 cases, the authors analysed the clinical features of epileptic seizures observed with this malformation. They put the stress on the paradoxical presence of generalized seizures.
