It either occurs as an isolated anomaly (rare) or as part of wider cerebral malformation and it has variable degrees of neurological impairment Pontocerebellar hypoplasia (PCH), also referred as pontocerebellar hypoplasia of Barth, is an autosomal recessive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by hypoplasia of the pons and cerebellum. Actually, this condition has 10 different described subtypes, all of them with a prenatal onset 3 Some classification systems for focal cortical dysplasia have been devised over the years since the first description in 1971 by Taylor et al. 5. The most common classification used until recently was the histopathological system proposed by Palmini et al. 6 in 2004 a genetic/imaging classification by Barkovich et al. 2 in 2005 Cerebellar dysplasia may be associated with cerebellar hypoplasia, hence, their inclusion in this article. Disorders associated with large cerebellar size are rare and are mentioned briefly. Cerebellar hypoplasia is a feature of several neurodevelopmental disorders and occurs during fetal life

IMAGING FINDINGS. On multiplanar MR images (, Figs 1, - 4), the cerebellum appeared enlarged, with a mass lesion of abnormal signal intensity in the region of the cerebellar vermis.On T1-weighted images, the mass was predominantly hypointense and had typical prominent hypo- and isointense striations (, Fig 1).On T2-weighted images, the mass was predominantly hyperintense and had hyper.

So an alpha angle of 56 degrees at the age of 7 weeks is called type IIa+, while at the age of 10 weeks it is called a type IIa-. Type IIb.

Mutated zinc finger protein of the cerebellum 1 leads to microcephaly, cortical malformation, callosal agenesis, cerebellar dysplasia, tethered cord and scoliosis Patel and Barkovich suggested an imaging-based classification of cerebellar malformations and classified the malformations broadly into two types, malformations with cerebellar hypoplasia and the ones with cerebellar dysplasia. Each of these was further classified into focal and diffuse
The term PROS (PIK3CA-Related Overgrowth Spectrum) indicates a wide spectrum of overgrowth disorders related to somatic mutations in PIK3CA (phosphatidylinositol-4,5-bisphosphate 3-kinase catalytic subunit alpha) pathway.

From the large cohort of patients with hindbrain imaging abnormalities referred to the University of Washington Hindbrain Research Program, we identified patients with a distinct combination of brainstem asymmetry, superior cerebellar dysplasia and basal ganglia dysplasia and without a diagnosis of MCD (e.g. pachygyria and polymicrogyria) Dr. Mountz is a Professor of Radiology, Director of NeuroNuclear Medicine, and Chief of The Division of Nuclear Medicine, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Health System, Pittsburgh, PA.. Most combined positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) scanners are optimized for applications in body oncology imaging and are more limited for use in neuroimaging examinations than. Neuroimaging enables the distinction between various morphological pattern of cerebellar anomalies including cerebellar agenesis, cerebellar hypoplasia, pontocerebellar hypoplasia, cerebellar dysplasia, cerebellar dysmorphia, and cerebellar atrophy (Fig. 2).For these patterns, different diagnostic criteria based on neuroimaging findings have been delineated We report on a patient with Sedaghatian type spondylometaphyseal dysplasia (SSMD) who presented with metaphyseal dysplasia, congenital atrioventricular block, simplified gyral pattern, hypogenesis of corpus callosum, and severe cerebellar hypoplasia Radiology department of the Alrijne Hospital in Leiderdorp, the Netherlands.

Typical cerebellar cortical dysplasia as a newly categorized cerebellar malformation, has been seen in patients with Fukuyama congenital muscular dystrophy. Cerebellar cortical dysplasia occurs at the embryonic stage and is often observed in healthy newborns. It is also incidentally and initially detected in adults without symptoms Purpose: Crossed cerebellar diaschisis (CCD) has been widely studied in hemispheric stroke but is less characterized in epilepsy. In this study, we used 18 F-FDG PET/CT to investigate the risk factors for CCD and its prognostic value for intractable epilepsy caused by focal cortical dysplasia (FCD).. Methods: One hundred medically intractable epilepsy patients pathologically diagnosed with FCD. In spite of having many classifications for pediatric cerebellar malformations (PCMs), no broadly accepted classification is recommended. Associated neurodevelopmental outcomes in children with PCMs remain poorly defined. Neuroimaging is compulsory for the diagnosis of cerebellar malformation and their associated abnormalities. This article emphasizes on the clinical and radiological traits of. Cerebellar ataxia is a motor ataxia (failure of motor coordination) with strength preserved. If unilateral, the ataxia is ipsilateral. Animals may stand with a broad-based stance. Truncal ataxia (swaying of the body) may be present. Dysmetria.

Fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) is a non-atherosclerotic, non-inflammatory arteriopathy that results in stenosis, aneurysm, dissection and arterial tortuosity. 1 The manifestations beyond pathognomonic multifocal (alternating areas of stenosis and dilation, or string-of-beads) and focal (single area of stenosis) FMD have been increasingly recognized. 1-6 In the US Registry for FMD, dissection. History: Radiology resident being scanned for a physics lesson has an incidental finding. This is my brain MRI! The finding is called a fetal origin of the posterior cerebral artery, and it occurs when the embryonic form of the posterior cerebral artery fails to regress. It is a normal variant that occurs on either sid We describe MRI findings in two patients with disorganised foliation of one cerebellar hemisphere, with folia running vertically rather than horizontally. The thickness of individual folia and corticomedullary interdigitations were normal. These patients have no cerebellar neurological deficit. This rare abnormality is probably a maldevelopment of the hemispheric part of the posterior lobe of. . It is actually of the type of structural defects that are usually found in the cerebellum. The cerebellum is actually that part of the brain whose main function is to control the balance.

Using a combination of homozygosity mapping and whole-exome sequencing, we identified. Cerebellar hypoplasia is a neurological condition in which the cerebellum is smaller than usual or not completely developed. Cerebellar hypoplasia is a feature of a number of congenital (present at birth) malformation syndromes, such as Walker-Warburg syndrome (a form of muscular dystrophy. It is also associated with several inherited metabolic.

Cerebellar cognitive affective syndrome (CCAS), also called Schmahmann's syndrome is a condition that follows from lesions (damage) to the cerebellum of the brain. It refers to a constellation of deficits in the cognitive domains of executive function, spatial cognition, language, and affect resulting from damage to the cerebellum. Impairments of executive function include problems with. Ectopic adenopituitary tissue was found pharyngeally ( 141 ), and ectopic neuropituitary tissue has been described in cases where the neuropituitary gland is either absent or underdeveloped ( 06; 36 ). The diagnoses of pituitary aplasia, hypoplasia, and dysplasia are difficult to make. In the diagnostic process, 3 principal methods are used: (1. Focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) is a congenital abnormality of brain development where the neurons in an area of the brain failed to migrate in the proper formation in utero. Focal means that it is limited to a focal zone in any lobe. Focal cortical dysplasia is a common cause of intractable epilepsy in children and is a frequent cause of epilepsy in adults BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: MR imaging findings of cerebellar cortical dysplasia have been described as a new cerebellar malformation. The purpose of this study was to assess the association of cerebellar cortical dysplasia with other cerebral malformations. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 46 MR examinations of patients presenting with developmental delay, hypotonia, and facial deformities to.

Dysplasia Epiphysealis Hemimelica, also known as Trevor's Disease, is a rare congenital bone dysplasia caused by the development of an osteochondroma in the epiphysis that presents with asymmetrical limb deformity. Diagnosis is made with radiographs of the affected joint. Treatment is usually surgical excision of the lesion in early. Fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) is a non-inflammatory, non-atherosclerotic disease resulting in stenosis and arterial wall weakening of typically medium-sized arteries.
