Dyke-Davidoff-Masson Syndrome: A Delayed Diagnosis of an Acquired Variant

by Kumar T S., Vipul A., Yadav R.

Summary: Dyk-Davidof-Masson Syndrome (DDMS) is an important cause of intractable and drug-resistant seizures. It has varied clinical presentation and history with distinct neuroimaging features.
