Progressive facial hemiatrophy (PFH), Parry-Romberg syndrome, is a rare disorder frequently associated with epilepsy. We describe a 28-year-old man who had PFH and partial epilepsy that was easily controlled with antiepileptic drugs. In accordance with this patient's benign course of seizures, the cortical silent period was prolonged in the symptomatic hemisphere. This finding may represent compensatory interictal mechanisms in epilepsy. (C) 2004 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
