Patient
male, 33 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Unenhanced axial image through the level of the lateral ventricles

    CT scan shows a gross global disruption and malformation of cerebral and parenchymal tissue, which is replaced by numerous cystic spaces, some of which interconnect with each other.

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: CT;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Unenhanced axial image through the level of the corona radiata

    CT scan shows a gross global disruption and malformation of both cerebral and parenchymal tissue, which is replaced by numerous cystic spaces.

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: CT;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Post-contrast midline sagittal image

    Midline sagittal image shows certain early developmental neural structures such as the corpus callosum being absent while the cerebral arterial and venous anatomy being relatively preserved (with normal internal...

  • Figure 4
    Post-contrast coronal image

    Post-contrast coronal image shows parts of the left calvarial inner table overlying some of the peripheral cystic spaces demonstrating a degree of bony scalloping implying a longstanding process.

Midline sagittal image shows certain early developmental neural structures such as the corpus callosum being absent while the cerebral arterial and venous anatomy being relatively preserved (with normal internal cerebral veins and straight sinus).
