Partial Agenesis Of Corpus Callosum (Overview)

Partial agenesis of the corpus callosum is a birth defect (congenital defect) in which a person is missing part of the corpus callosum, which is the brain structure that connects the left half of the brain to the right half. The amount of problems in brain function depends on the severity of the birth defect.

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

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.

In most cases, it is not possible to know what caused an individual to have ACC. ...Read more

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

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
