Pradhan M, Malla KK, Chowdhury SR, Baral MR

Schizencephaly is a rare developmental disorder of neuronal migration, characterized by early focal
destruction of the germinal matrix and surrounding brain before the cerebral hemispheres are fully formed
at 1-5 months of gestation .The lesion is most likely related to multiple aetiologies including genetic, toxic,
metabolic, vascular or infectious agents. This case is reported due to its rarity. The prevalence of
schizencephaly is very uncommon internationally
