Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS) is an electro-clinical syndrome composed of the triad of mental retardation, multiple seizure types, and the characteristic generalized slow spike-wave complexes in the electroencephalogram. In this article, we report on two patients with LGS whose brain magnetic resonance imaging showed dysgenesis of corpus callosum (CC). We discuss the role of CC in the genesis of secondary bilateral synchrony.
Key words: Epilepsy; Slow spike-wave complexes; Secondary bilateral synchrony
