Relatively rare, Rasmussen encephalitis is a chronic inflammatory disease conditioning a single cerebral hemisphere. It is a progressive pathology with different stages clinically and on MRI. Therefore, imaging has an important role in evoking the diagnosis and also excluding other possible etiologies. We report a case of Rasmussen encephalitis with 2 different stages on MRI and also provide a review of the role of imaging in diagnostic criteria, differential diagnoses, and stages of this pathology.
