A ten-months-old girl was evaluated for developmental delay, increased muscle tone and seizures. CT and MRI revealed un uncommon combination of two different manifestations of neuronal migration disturbance: agyria/pachygyria and subcortical laminar heterotopia ("double cortex" syndrome). The occurrence of these two manifestations of neuronal migration dosorders in the same individual is quite unusual. The possible pathogenesis of such a complex disorder could probably be established only by histologic examination of the brain. A positive serologic reaction for cytomegalovirus in the infant at the age of 11 months and in the mother suggested but did not prove the cytomegalovirus infection in early gestation as the cause of the disorder.
