134 Possible Causes for Thickened Corpus Callosum

  • Anterior Cerebral Artery Occlusion

    The corpus callosum : It’s a thickened fibrous band that is responsible for dividing the brain into two halves.[newhealthadvisor.com]

  • Growth Failure

    callosum.[cyberleninka.org] Note the presence of abnormally thickened fiber bundles with superior-to-inferior direction, located between the optic radiations and the lateralventricles (arrowheads).[cyberleninka.org] Corresponding axial fractional anisotropy (FA)-weighted colour directional maps confirm the disproportion between the genu (arrow) and the splenium (empty arrow) of the corpus[cyberleninka.org]

  • Macrocephaly

    Other findings included a high frequency of cavum septum pellucidum or vergae, thickened corpus callosum, prominent optic nerve sheaths and a single case of venous sinus thrombosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] of the ipsilateral genu of the corpus callosum.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] et al [ 8 ] reported 3 neurologically normal adolescents who showed enlargement of the right frontal lobe with increased volume of subcortical and deep white matter and thickening[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cronkhite-Canada Syndrome

    Hydrocephalus and diffuse thickening of the corpus callosum have also been described.[suprepkit.com]

  • Cystic Kidney Disease

    corpus callosum but no findings more typical of OFD1, such as intracerebral cysts, hydrocephalus, malformations of cortical development, agenesis of the corpus callosum,[hindawi.com] He had a brain MRI which showed mild T2/fluid attenuation inversion recovery (FLAIR) hyperintensities in the medial temporal lobes bilaterally as well as a mildly thickened[hindawi.com]

  • Growth Hormone Deficiency

    callosum hypoplasia/agenesis, holoprosencephaly, thickened pituitary stalk (seen in Langerhans cell histiocytosis and germinoma) and the presence of an empty sella.[adc.bmj.com] […] thin or interrupted pituitary stalk. 24 Other abnormalities associated with GHD include hypothalamo-pituitary axis tumours such as craniopharyngioma, septo-optic dysplasia, corpus[adc.bmj.com]

  • Binswanger Disease

  • Facial Hemiatrophy

    CT and MR findings included unilateral focal infarctions in the corpus callosum, diffuse deep and subcortical white matter signal changes, mild cortical thickening, and leptomeningeal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cerebral hemiatrophy, monoventricular enlargement, meningocortical dysmorphia, cortical thickening and dysgenesis, unilateral focal infarctions in the corpus callosum, diffuse[doi.org] […] deep and subcortical white matter signal changes, leptomeningeal thickening and enhancement, dense mineral depositions, aneurysms, and vascular malformations have been associated[doi.org]

  • Nasal Polyp

    Key Diagnostic Features: More frequently associated anomalies include: Hypothalamic mass (58%) Agenesis of the corpus callosum (39%) Hypertelorism (65%) Cleft palate (61%)[ajnr.org] Broadening or thickening of the optic chiasm (23%) Oropharyngeal masses (teratomas, 23%; epignathus, 16%; dermoids, 10%; polypoid masses, 6%) Clefts/fusion of vertebral bodies[ajnr.org]

  • Nevus Sebaceous

    callosum), and defects of the folds of the brain including a smooth brain that lacks the distinctive folds (agyria), abnormally small folds (microgyria) and abnormally thickened[rarediseases.org] […] other (hemimegalencephaly), malformation (dysplasia) of the certain brain vessels, absence (agenesis) of the bundle of nerves that connects the two cerebral hemispheres (corpus[rarediseases.org]
