What is a nonspecific heterogeneous calciric density along tje right paramedian posterior cingulate gyrus versus splenium of the corpus callosum?

Chronic: The report describes a prior area of pathology which has become calcified over a period of years. This represents an archaic process, and has been uncovered coincidently. Unlikely to correlate with current issues. However, discuss with your physician to be complete. ...Read more

What causes agenesis of the corpus callosum?

What causes agenesis of the corpus callosum?

It is a: developmental congenital abnormality, occurring in isolation or in association with various cerebral abnormalities/syndromes.Agenesis of the corpus callosum is caused by disruption to development of the fetal brain between the 3rd and 12th weeks of pregnancy. In most cases, it is not possible to know what caused an individual to have ACC. ...Read more

What would a child be like with agenesis of the corpus callosum?

What would a child be like with agenesis of the corpus callosum?

Mid-line defect: Agenesis of the corpus callosum may be associated with other brain abnormalities. How a child would be with agenesis of the corpus callosum depends on the extent of other associated findings. Optic nerve hypoplasia, pituitary abnormalities, developmental delays, and other neurological problems are associated with this. Please see http://www.Ninds.Nih.Gov/disorders/agenesis/agenesis.Htm. ...Read more

What are the tests for partial agenesis of corpus callosum?

What are the tests for partial agenesis of corpus callosum?

Partial agenesis: A fetal MRI can confirm what we see on ultrasound and may be helpful in prediction. Chromosomal analysis, usually by amniocentesis, is also important. Unfortunately, imaging studies do not predict function of the fetus after delivery. Partial agenesis may be worse than complete absence of the corpus callosum. ...Read more

Son had MRI results of: irregular t2 and flair hyperintensity along the left aspect of the body of the corpus callosum. What does this mean?

Son had MRI results of: irregular t2 and flair hyperintensity along the left aspect of the body of the corpus callosum. What does this mean?

Many things: This could be a million things. If this is the only finding, this may represent "gliosis", which is scarring in the brain. Children can have strokes in utero. His age makes ms unlikely. They may want to follow up on regular basis if there is any concern for a low grade tumor. In the end, his neurologist who will have seen the images, and your son, will be your guide on what this means. ...Read more

What to do if I am almost 32 years old! i found out approx. 7.5 years ago that I have no corpus callosum (mid- brain)?

What to do if I am almost 32 years old! i found out approx. 7.5 years ago that I have no corpus callosum (mid- brain)?

Neurobehavioral Rx: The corpus callosum is a white matter tract that connects the two hemispheres. There's a whole range of disorders that are connected to either agenesis or incomplete formation of this white matter tract. Most of the treatment is behavioral in origin. Obviously stimulation of the brain by any means possible will be to your benefit now and in the future. Good luck and well wishes. ...Read more

My daughter is 21 mos old but was born at 24 weeks of pregancey she had a MRI done the other day and said that her corpus callosum appears slightly sm?

Normal variation: A major problem with MRI is that it often shows useless information. Severe premature babies can have delayed myelination that is of no clinical significance. I would ignore the MRI and just enjoy how well she is trying to recover from a very early birth. I do not approve of using the MRI to try to predict outcome. ...Read more

CIS vs MS vs stroke: You have a demyelinating lesion in the back part of your corpus callosum . This can be due to MS , clinically isolated syndrome or something else. Your ability to process vision may be affected. I do not have enough information to comment on the abnormal blood count. Based on what has been ordered it appears that you are in good hands. ...Read more

What is the prognosis if agenesis of corpus collosum?

What is the prognosis if agenesis of corpus collosum?

Prognosis: Counseling for agenesis of the corpus collosum is difficult. Imaging cannot predict how the fetus will develop and function. About 10% of the adult population has agenesis of the corpus collosum and function normally. The prognosis for partial agenesis of the corpus collosum is worse and is associated with function impairment. ...Read more

Doc said tht my baby has a genesis of corpus callosm & MIGHT hve heart condition & diagnosed w/ dandy walker syndrom. 15 weeks preg, what to do?

Consult neurosurgeon: Prenatal findings of agenesis of the corpus callosum and possible dandy walker malformation may indicate developing hydrocephalus. A consultation with a pediatric neurosurgeon can confirm the findings and allow you to discuss the best follow-up plan and treatment options both during the rest of the pregnancy and after delivery, as well as safe methods of delivery itself. ...Read more

How does metabolic influences of mitochondria processing of simple sugars during pregnancy effect the development of the corpus callosum in a fetus?

Fetal development: Truth to say, we don't really know what effects the development of the corpus callosum in the fetus. We do know that about 10% of adults do not have a corpus callosum and are essentially normal. Partial absence of the corpus callosum is abnormal and associated with mental retardation. ...Read more
