129 Possible Causes for Dilatation of the Lateral and Third Ventricles

  • 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]

  • Pineal Gland Neoplasm

    On head CT scan, pineal choriocarcinoma is characterized by a round, calcified, homogeneous, enhancing mass in the third ventricle associated with the dilation of the lateral[wikidoc.org] […] and third ventricles and periventricular lucency. [5] On brain MRI, pineal choriocarcinoma is characterized by hyperintensity on T1-weighted images and signal drop-out and[wikidoc.org]

  • Cerebral Toxoplasmosis

    Neuropathological examination showed severe ventriculitis with large ependymal and subependymal necrosis as well as dilatation of the lateral and the third ventricle.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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]

  • Extragonadal Germinoma

    This is causing dilatation of the lateral and third ventricles.[neuroradiologyonthenet.blogspot.com]

  • 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]

  • Foster-Kennedy Syndrome

    […] of bilateral lateral and third ventricles, all suggestive of petroclival meningioma.[casereports.in] […] bone with extension into upper cervical region along pictorial membrane which was iso-intense to grey matter on T1 and T2 causing mass effect with changes in brainstem, dilatation[casereports.in]

  • 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]

  • Dandy-Walker Syndrome

    , and variable dilatation of the third and lateral ventricles.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The typical sonographic features are a triangular posterior fossa cyst, a dilated aqueduct of Sylvius in communication with the cyst, elevation and hypoplasia of the cerebellum[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Infratentorial Tumor
