Refractory epilepsy is common in practice of neurology. When associated with hemiparesis and hemiatrophy a possibility of Dyke-Davidoff-Masson syndrome (DDMS) could be considered and imaging helps in confirmation. We present a case report of a 10-year-old female who presented with seizures, right-sided hemiparesis, hemiatrophy of the right side of the body, and mental retardation. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) brain revealed characteristic features diagnostic of congenital type of cerebral hemiatrophy or DDMS. Few case reports are described in literature highlighting crossed cerebellar diaschisis an imaging finding associated with the syndrome on MRI. The associated MRI findings of the syndrome are described.
