Subcortical leukomalacia

Subcortical leukomalacia corresponds to a continuous disease spectrum of periventricular leukomalacia (PVL) as the vascular border zones shift towards the periphery as the brain further matures. For this reason white matter lesions move from the periventricular to the subcortical zone.

Please refer on the article periventricular leukomalacia (PVL) for further discussion related to this entity.
