MRI of the brain of a child demonstrating bilateral and midline abnormalities.
On both sides abnormal grey matter (polymicrogyria) can be seen extending from the cortex to the body of the lateral ventricles. On the left a cleft is present filled by CSF, whereas on the right only a slight indentation of the ventricular wall is present.
Additionally the septum pellucidum is absent.
Findings are consistent with bilateral schizencephaly. On the right it is of the closed lip variety whereas on the left it is open lip.
