17 Possible Causes for Dilatation of the 3rd Ventricle

  • Hydrocephalus

    The pattern of ventricular enlargement helps to determine the cause: Dilated lateral 3rd ventricle: With normal 4th ventricle - aqueduct stenosis.[patient.info] Generalised ventricular dilatation suggests a communicating hydrocephalus.[patient.info]

  • Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus

    The dilation of the ventricular system in typical cases includes not only the temporal horns but also the 3rd and 4th ventricles.[likvor.com] By definition, the intracranial pressure (ICP) is normal, and the ventricular system dilated due to the cerebrospinal fluid excess.[likvor.com]

  • Communicating Hydrocephalus

    Preoperative magnetic resonance images (MRIs) showed dilated ventricles, a downward bulging floor of the 3rd ventricle (interpreted as a sign of pressure gradient between[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The pattern of ventricular enlargement helps to determine the cause: Dilated lateral 3rd ventricle: With normal 4th ventricle - aqueduct stenosis.[patient.info] We performed 3rd ventriculostomies in 5 patients with free cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) communication from the ventricles to the cisterna magna.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Infantile Choroidocerebral Calcification Syndrome

    Another case of Hydrocephalus in neonate Sonography of this neonatal brain shows severe dilatation of both lateral ventricles, the 3rd ventricle and also the fourth ventricle[ultrasound-images.com] Sonography of the brain revealed a) absence of the corpus callosum b) prominent, dilated and elevated 3rd ventricle c) sharply angled lateral peaks of the lateral ventricles[ultrasound-images.com]

  • Obstructive Hydrocephalus

    The pattern of ventricular enlargement helps to determine the cause: Dilated lateral 3rd ventricle: With normal 4th ventricle - aqueduct stenosis.[patient.info] Generalised ventricular dilatation suggests a communicating hydrocephalus.[patient.info]

  • Cerebellar Mass Lesion

    […] causing mild dilation of the lateral & 3rd ventricles.[shp.missouri.edu] Hemorrhage in 3rd & 4th ventricles has resolved. Ventriculostomy shunt catheter near foramen of Monroe visible.[shp.missouri.edu] Ventricles are minimally dilated and unchanged from prior study. There is no evidence of hydrocephalus.[shp.missouri.edu]

  • Congenital Communicating Hydrocephalus

    The pattern of ventricular enlargement helps to determine the cause: Dilated lateral 3rd ventricle: With normal 4th ventricle - aqueduct stenosis.[patient.info] Generalised ventricular dilatation suggests a communicating hydrocephalus.[patient.info]

  • Prader-Willi Syndrome

    Laboratory investigations revealed minimal dilatation in 3rd and 4th ventricles and corpus callosum hypoplasia in magnetic resonance imaging, supravalvular pulmonary stenosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lenz-Majewski Syndrome

    Gross dilatation of both lateral ventricles and 3rd ventricle was noticed with evidence of focal space occupying lesion in posterior fossa extending down into cervical canal[jpma.org.pk]

  • Mumps Orchitis

    There were dilatations of the lateral and 3rd ventricles as well as periventricular edema on the axial T2WI cranial MRI.[ijri.org] 3rd ventricles as well as edema in the periventricular region, which was observable also in the axial flair, MRI.[ijri.org] Sagittal T-1 weighted imaging (T1WI) revealed dilated lateral ventricles [Figure - 1] A, B and C.[ijri.org]
