Abstract

Rasmussen's syndrome, a syndrome of chronic focal encephalitis, is usually considered to be a disease of childhood. Typical features include intractable focal seizures and progressive unilateral neurological deficits with radiological evidence of focal cortical atrophy. This report documents the case of the oldest patient yet described in the literature with Rasmussen's syndrome. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed gadolinium enhancing tissue, not previously described in this condition.
