Example text

The brain lesions of TSC are subependymal nodules and cortical tubers. Subependymal nodules can be visualized as early as 21 weeks gestational age by MR imaging (43), appearing as focal T2 hypointensities that project into the high intensity of the lateral ventricular CSF. Subcortical nodules may also be visualized as T2 hypointense contrasted against the hyperintensity of the subarachnoid CSF. The T2 hypointensity is probably related to magnetic susceptibility artifact (from calcification) or low-mobile water concentration.

Sonographic biometry showed head measurements 2 weeks less than expected for gestational age and abdominal circumference 4 weeks less than expected. Coronal T2-weighted images of head (a and b) show mild ventriculomegaly. Coronal view of head and torso (c) shows the relatively small size of the body as compared to the head, consistent with severe intrauterine growth restriction. 5 Severe ventriculomegaly associated with Walker–Warburg syndrome at 33 weeks gestational age. Sagittal T2-weighted image (a) shows hypogenesis of the corpus callosum with a thin genu and anterior body (white arrowheads) and a relatively small cerebellum (c) within a large posterior fossa.
