Patients with malformations of cortical development and epilepsy may have a variety of abnormal brain findings, including abnormal gyral patterns, cortical thickening, decreased volume of white matter, and increased diffusion of white matter. The status of individual white matter fiber tracts, however, is unknown. We present a case of bilateral frontal schizencephaly and subcortical heterotopia and illustrate alterations of white matter fascicles by combined structural and functional diffusion tensor imaging at 3 T.
