77 Possible Causes for Dilatation of the Lateral and Third Ventricles

  • Obstructive Hydrocephalus

    Imaging studies revealed diffusely edematous cerebellar hemispheres with effacement of the fourth ventricle, causing dilation of the lateral and third ventricles.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient was transferred to the regional paediatric intensive care unit, where computed tomograms showed dilatation of the lateral and third ventricles with some reduction[bmj.com] Computed tomography demonstrated dilated lateral and third ventricles with a relatively normal-sized fourth ventricle. An external ventricular drain was placed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cardiocranial Syndrome Type Pfeiffer

    Brain ultrasound scan showedmoderate dilatation of the lateral and third ventricles. Therewere protruding eyes with shallow orbits and a high archedpalate (Fig. 1).[vdocuments.mx]

  • Baraitser-Winter Syndrome 1

    […] of the lateral and third ventricles.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 2 at the age of 3 months; ( d1 ) T2-weighted transversal section shows bilateral pachygyria; ( d2 ) T1-weighted IR coronal section shows hypoplastic corpus callosum and dilatation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Communicating Hydrocephalus

    In 10, the dilated lateral ventricles caused a marked inferior displacement of the third ventricle.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In communicating hydrocephalus lateral ventricles, third ventricle, aqueduct and fourth ventricle are dilated.[stritch.luc.edu] Both lateral ventricles, and third and fourth ventricles were prominently dilated, and all cisterns of the posterior fossa and suprasellar cistern were also dilated (Figure[chanrejournals.com]

  • Polymicrogyria

    Magnetic resonance imaging of the brain revealed dilatation of the lateral and third ventricles with cavum septi pellucidi et vergae and generalized polymicrogyria, most prominent[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congenital Communicating Hydrocephalus

    In communicating hydrocephalus lateral ventricles, third ventricle, aqueduct and fourth ventricle are dilated.[stritch.luc.edu] A bedside cranial ultrasound {Figure 1} showed dilated lateral, third and fourth ventricles suggestive of communicating hydrocephalus.[pediatriconcall.com] Features of long standing non-communicating obstructive hydrocephalus (at the level of the aqueduct of Sylvius or below) include 1-3 : marked dilatation of the ventricles,[radiopaedia.org]

  • Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus

    It is known that imaging studies in NPH patients may demonstrate dilated lateral and third ventricles and thinning of the corpus callosum without concomitant dilatation of[aansneurosurgeon.org] […] of the third and lateral ventricles.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Computed tomography scan of the head showed symmetrically dilated third, fourth, and lateral ventricles.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congenital Herpes Simplex

    Figure 5: Findings of brain magnetic resonance imaging on day 7 of life (a) severe dilatation of lateral ventricles, third and fourth ventricles; (b) severe dilatation of[jcnonweb.com] lateral ventricles, third and fourth ventricles, and the cisterna magna; (c) bilateral retinal detachment with fibrosis and choroidal thickness Click here to view Based on[jcnonweb.com] […] of lateral, third and fourth ventricles, and the cisterna magna which left very thin portion of mantle of cerebral and cerebellar tissues and chalky white discs, bilateral[jcnonweb.com]

  • Multiple Epiphyseal Dysplasia Type Al-Gazali

    Delay in shunting for the hydrocephalus had resulted in massive dilatation of the lateral and third ventricles, with severe compression and distortion of the cerebral mantle[rrnursingschool.biz]

  • Adrenal Insufficiency Secondary to Hypopituitarism

    Hydrocephalus (secondary or idiopathic) is a condition characterized by dilatation of the lateral and third ventricles, and often associated with increased intracranial pressure[clinicaltrials.gov] We hypothesize that either the ventricle dilatation or the increased ICP may cause disturbances in the hypothalamic-pituitary axis, resulting in different degrees of hypopituitarism[clinicaltrials.gov]
