A one and a half year old mentally retarded girl was brought to the pediatric department with complaints of abnormal side to side movement of the head, uprolling of the eyes, and panting respiration alternating with attacks of apnea. The child was born of an uneventful pregnancy.

Clinical examination showed only delayed milestones, in addition to abnormal movements of the eyes. Cerebrospinal fluid analysis did not show any deviation from normal findings. A CT of the brain [Figure - 1],[Figure - 2],[Figure - 3] was obtained.
