Cerebrospinal fluid-filled cleft and lined by the cortical gray matter extending from the subarachnoid space of the frontoparietal region on the right down to the lateral ventricle. The grey matter is thickened and irregular along the cleft.
The recent patient was referred to us for brain MRI in view of the history of recurrent partial seizures for the last 8 months intractable to anticonvulsant sodium valproate. He had a history of a right-sided headache for the past 3 years which relieved after taking oral medications. Regarding the imaging findings, open lip schizencephaly is diagnosed.
