Hemimegalencephaly is uncommon congenital malformation with unilateral enlargement of the hemicerebrum. Here we report a 1 month-old male child presented at our neurosurgery outpatient’s clinic with recurrent seizures and facial asymmetry. CT and MRI of the brain revealed diagnostic characteristic features of Hemimegalencephaly associated with ipsilateral Facial Congenital Infiltrating Lipomatosis.
