A child affected by multiple dysmorphisms and behavioral disorders with pericentric inversion on chromosome 9 [46 XY inv 9 (p11q11)] is reported. In this patient, a focal cortical dysplasia in right temporal lobe was observed on magnetic resonance imaging of the brain. To our knowledge, this report is the first description of focal cortical dysplasia in a patient of an occidental country with pericentric inversion of chromosome. 9. The relationship between alterations localised on chromosome 9 and cerebral cortical organisation disorders is discussed.
