The description of DDMS has been used in the presence of associated radiologic findings. In this paper, we present 2 siblings: one admitted to Our hospital with seizures and diagnosed with DDMS and the other with a history of seizures, similar presentation of a neurologic examination and elect to physiology testing, but With normal results on magnetic resonance imaging. We present these cases to demonstrate similar symptoms and physical and elcctrophysiologic features in 2 siblings with similar clinical presentations with different magnetic resonance imaging findings.
