Abstract Summary: The case reports of 17-year-old female dizygotic twins are presented. One of the twins had bilateral closed-lip schizencephaly, and the other had focal cortical dyspla-sia. Septum pellucidum was absent in both cases. The cor-tical dysplasia in case 2 corresponded to the same hemispheric location with the right schizencephalic cleft in case 1. The combination of schizencephaly and focal cor-tical dysplasia in siblings or twins has not been previously reported. Schizencephaly has been proposed as an extreme variation of focal cortical dysplasia (1). Although one hypothesis for its cause is based on vascular compromise during early neuroembryogenesis (2), familial occurrence also has been reported (3–5). However, the ethiopathogenesis of schizencephaly is still unclear.
