MRI is the modality of choice in evaluating both the corpus callosum. Features include:


  • parallel racing car ventricles
  • moose head or viking helmet appearance
  • dilated high-riding 3rd ventricle communicating with the interhemispheric cistern or projecting superiorly as a dorsal cyst
  • colpocephaly
  • bundles of Probst & radial gyri (absent cingulate gyrus)
  • hypoplastic fornices

I was born with full Agenesis of the CC. All my life have had developmental issues, but only disovered this 5 years ago, it changed my life. I have a blog about living with AgCC called "A Boy with a Whole in His Head~a day in the life of a man without a corpus callosum" at Http://www.aboywithawholeinhishead.info, and am part of support groups for adults with the same!
Cheers!
