Abstract: Rasmussen syndrome is a rare cryptogenic progressive brain disorder causing severe neurological problems. Surgery, particularly hemispherectomy in any of its varied forms, has an excellent effect in controlling seizures. We report two Tunisian patients with classically sporadic and unilateral childhood form. They are both treated successfully with vertical parasagittal hemispherotomy. This paper discusses and reviews the advances in epilepsy surgery for Rasmussen syndrome.
