Dyke-Davidoff-Masson syndrome refers to atrophy of one cerebral hemisphere (hemiatrophy) due to
an insult to the brain in fetal or early childhood period. This is an uncommon condition. We present a
case of a nine month- old female presented with seizure and weakness of the right upper and lower
extremities and subsequently computed tomography was performed and showed hemiatrophy of
the left fronto-parietal lobe with degenerative changes in the left cerebral peduncle.
Keywords: Dyke-Davidoff-Masson syndrome; hemiatrophy; hemiplegia.
