Hemimegalencephaly is a rare neurological condition in which one-half of the brain, or one side of the brain, is abnormally larger than the other. As a consequence of this imbalance, the unusual and enlarged brain tissue causes frequent seizures, usually followed with mental retardation. Hemimegalencephaly may occur as an isolated finding in an infant or it may be associated with other syndromes.
