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.

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.
