Clinical, neuroimaging and cytogenetic findings in 20 patients with corpus callosum dysgenesis

Arq Neuropsiquiatr. 2002 Jun;60(2-B):382-5.

Abstract

Twenty children with corpus callosum agenesis or hypoplasia were evaluated under a standardized investigation protocol. Psychomotor retardation, seizures, and craniofacial anomalies were the most prominent findings. There were three cases of chromosomal anomalies, all of them representing trisomy of chromosome 8.
