Dr. Kinjal Patel, Dr. Kaushik Rana, Dr. Jay Patel

Abstract: Hypertrophic pachymeningitis is a inflammatory disease of the dura matter characterised by localized or diffuse thickening of the dura mater with fibrosis. It is rare disorder of diverse etiology like secondary to infections, carcinomatosis , or inflammatory diseases or part of mixed connective tissue disorder. It may also be idiopathic. We report a case of pachymeningitis which was a 45 year-old female presented with left-extremity focal seizure and paraesthesia of both lower limbs and blurring of vision. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed a diffuse thickening and enhancement of the right convexity dura matter and falx with focal nodularity. She was diagnosed to have mixed connective tissue disorder. The disease may have a remitting and relapsing course. She responded to steroids. She had relapse of disease after one month and recovered with immunosuppresants.

Keywords: Hypertrophic pachymeningitis , Mixed connective tissue disorder, focal seizure.
