Developmental anomalies of the corpus callosum are agenesis, hypogenesis, or hypoplasia. In this case, a hump‐shaped anomaly was present in the body of the corpus callosum. The rostrum, genu, and splenium of the corpus callosum were normal. In addition, a split was present within this hump, connecting the lateral ventricles. No additional anomalies were present. This type of anomaly has not been previously reported in the literature.

    Transient focal lesions of splenium of corpus callosum can be seen as a component of many central nervous system diseases, including antiepileptic drug toxicity. The conventional magnetic resonance (MR) findings of the disease are characteristic and include ovoid lesions with high signal...

    We report here two cases of diffuse axonal injury (DAI) studied by MR diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and fibre tracking (FT) focused on the corpus callosum. In one case, DTI and FT pattern matched the diagnosis of broken white matter tracts. In the other case there was a discrepancy between DTI...

    Background: There is growing evidence for the idea of fMRI activation in white matter. In the current study, we compared hemodynamic response functions (HRF) in white matter and gray matter using 4 T fMRI. White matter fMRI activation was elicited in the isthmus of the corpus callosum at both...
