Prenatal MR diagnosis of a thick corpus callosum

AJNR Am J Neuroradiol. 1996 Nov-Dec;17(10):1918-20.


Fetal sonography revealed cerebral, facial, and genitourinary abnormalities, prompting MR at 33 weeks' gestational age. Cerebral MR confirmed a thickened corpus callosum and showed open sylvian fissures, abnormal gyri in the frontal lobes, and presumed neuronal heterotopias. An abortion was performed at 34 weeks' gestational age, and pathologic findings corresponded well to the MR manifestations.
