Hemimegalencephaly (HME) is a rare cortical developmental anomaly that can be defined as abnormal neural and glial proliferation localized to all or part of a cerebral hemisphere. Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is an autosomal dominant, multisystem disease that most frequently involves the central nervous system, skin, heart, kidneys, and eyes. Herein, we report the magnetic resonance imaging findings of a rare case of focal megalencephaly with TSC.
