Porencephaly is an extremely rare congenital disorder characterized by a cyst or a cavity filled with cerebrospinal fluid, in the brain’s parenchyma. An 18-year-old male with moderate intellectual disability presented with periodic unprovoked anger outbursts lasting 3-5 minutes of recent onset. Computed tomography of the head was done after the consultation and revealed a large porencephalic cyst in the left frontotemporal region. The patient responded well with tablet Clobazam 5mg BD and tablet Sodium Valproate 300mg BD. The condition is briefly discussed.

Keywords: Porencephaly, Seizures, Psychosis.
