Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Rasmussen's encephalitis usually presents in childhood. The clinical picture in Rasmussen's disease is protean, and the findings from direct brain imaging help to explain the variations seen in this syndrome. The role and involvement of the basal ganglia in this condition is clarified by comparing the changes seen on computerised tomography and magnetic resonance imaging with the clinical details of 21 patients described in this retrospective study.
