Abstract

This article reports the case of a patient with partial agenesis of the corpus callosum manifested with corpus callosum syndrome together with signs of brain hemispheres dysfunction: mental impairment, epilepsy and pyramidal signs. The patient’s malformation is combined with left-handedness while signs of callosal disconnection are not present. Mild cognitive impairment and late epilepsy onset require a multidisciplinary approach since the patient also displays elements of central nervous system malformations.

Keywords
