Abstract

Congenital perisylvian syndrome is a rare neurological disorder characterized by pseudobulbar palsy, cognitive deficits, epilepsy associated with bilateral perisylvian cortical dysplasia on magnetic resonance imaging. We herein report three cases with congenital bilateral perisylvian syndrome who presented with psychomotor retardation, speech delay and feeding difficulty because of the rarity of the syndrome.
