Abstract

Rasmussen’s Encephalitis (RE) is one form of chronic and progressive focal encephalitis of children presented with intractable epilepsy and progressive neurologic deficits. The cause of the disease is still unknown but thought to be an immunological disorder following a viral infection. Brain imaging is one of the best tolls for the diagnosis.
