Case Study
Introduction Agenesis of corpus callosum is a rare congenital disease (present at birth), characterized by partial or total absence ( due to lack of training - agenesis) of a region of the brain that connects the two cerebral hemispheres. Corpus callosum is generally made available from the transverse nerve fibers. The disease may occur singly or in combination with other systemic malformations of the central nervous system. Material and Methods In the perinatal period agenesis of the corpus callosum is diagnosed only by brain CT or ultrasound. Although the disease is present at birth with congenital character, in many cases it is diagnosed in childhood because the clinical manifestations appear and become evident quite late. In this paper we present a child for two years, presented to the pediatrician for seizures and spasticity. CT scan of the skull is very suggestive evidence of brain malformations. Discussions Appropriate inquiry in this case would have been Trans ultrasound, but the reasons given by parents who have not been made timely. Conclusions Total agenesis of corpus callosum is a very rare brain malformation. Skull CT generates native images for this malfomaţie suggestive but the diagnosis may be made by ultrasonography and Trans, and maximum certainty can complete MRI examination.
