Sagittal midline SE T1-weighted MR image shows hypogenesis of the corpus callosum by the presence of only the genu. Cingulate gyrus can be observed just next to the genu of corpus callosum. Note the midline cystic CSF intensity mass lodged within the third ventricle and compressing superior vermis inferiorly.
 
Sagittal left parasagittal SE T1-weighted MR image shows prominent left sided colpocephaly and a third ventricle located large midline cystic mass displacing colpocephalically dilated left ventricle compartments. Diffuse dysplasia (polymicrogyria) overlies all over the hemispheric surface, and there is a parallel band of heterotopic gray matter in between the cortex and ventricular surface.
 
Axial SE T1-weighted MR image shows prominent left sided colpocephaly and a large bilobulated midline cystic mass displacing colpocephalically dilated left ventricle compartments. Diffuse dysplasia (polymicrogyria) overlies all over the hemispheric surfaces, more prominent on the left, and there are parallel bands of heterotopic gray matter in between the cortex and ventricular surface anteriorly.
