Abstract:   (775 Views)
The agenesis of corpus callosum (ACC) is referred to a complete or partial defect in the formation of corpus callosum which is a commissure between brain hemispheres. It is a rare disease that can produce a wide range of syndromes and symptoms. We present a case of newborn baby Iranian girl who had agenesis of corpus callosum. Severe atrophy of brain and Intraventricular hemorrhage in the preterm neonate was reported. Dilation of lateral ventricles and third ventricle, as well as moderate hydrocephaly and subdural effusion, were recorded in medical ultrasound studies. The brain CT scan also indicated Intraventricular hemorrhage (grade IV) and severe brain atrophy.
Keywords: Agenesis Of Corpus Callosum, Intraventricular Hemorrhage, Brain Atrophy, Birth Defect.
