  • Figure 1
    On sagittal SE T1-weighted MR image of the brain

    there is complete absence of the corpus callosum, vermian hypoplasia, a cystic dilated fourth ventricle and a high position of the tentorium. The remaining upper portion of the vermis is tilted upward.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: On sagittal SE T1-weighted MR image of the brain;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Axial SE T1-weighted MR image of the brain

    shows cerebellar hypoplasia and a wide outflow tract of the fourth ventricle.

  • Figure 3
    Axial SE T2-weighted MR image of the brain

    demonstrates a parallel configuration of the lateral ventricles. The diagnosis was Dandy-Walker malformation with an associated agenesis of the corpus callosum.
