Schizencephaly is a congenital condition characterized by cerebrospinal fluid-filled clefts that extend from the pia surface of the cerebral hemisphere to the ependymal surface of the ventricle. Magnetic resonance imaging is the modality of choice for its diagnosis. Very few cases have been described in the literature in this environment. Here, we present an 18-month-old male child who presented in a tertiary hospital in Port Harcourt, Rivers State in Nigeria with 6 months history of recurrent seizures. A cranial MRI done revealed that he had right unilateral opened lip schizencephaly.
