Chudley-McCullough Syndrome

Chudley Mccullough Syndrome


  • Despite these striking brain malformations, individuals with CMS generally do not present with significant neurodevelopmental abnormalities, except for hearing loss.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • It is amply clear from the review of literature that treatment of ventricular dilatation or drainage of arachnoid cysts in these cases will not improve the sensorineural hearing loss.Case IllustrationA 14-month-old female child presented with bilateral[scipers.com]
  • CASE ILLUSTRATION A 14-month-old female child presented with bilateral profound sensorineural hearing loss. Neuroimaging revealed partial agenesis of the corpus callosum, colpocephaly, and an interhemispheric arachnoid cyst.[wwww.unboundmedicine.com]
Localized Pain
  • We decided to remove the valve of the non-functional ventriculo-atrial shunt, because of the local pain at the location of the valve.[elynsgroup.com]

Sloping Shoulders
  • Absence of radius * Underdeveloped first metacarpal * Underdeveloped radius * Ulna defects * Humerus defects * Clavicle defects * Scapula defects * Sternum defects * Reduced range of elbow motion * Reduced range of shoulder motion * Narrow shoulders * Sloping[checkorphan.org]
  • At the time, the diagnosis Chudley-McCullough syndrome was not known and she was not tested for papilledema. There was no ataxia, which could hint at a mass effect of the cyst.[elynsgroup.com]


  • To conclude, all patients with seizures and AC's must be meticulously searched for other structural abnormalities that may be present as well as undergo a detailed workup before proceeding on any surgery.[pediatricneurosciences.com]

  • Prenatal diagnosis of CMS is important due to the markedly less severe neurodevelopmental prognosis compared to disorders with similar brain imaging findings.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • It is important to diagnose CMS, since typically, patients with these types of brain malformations have very substantial developmental problems and seizures; therefore it is essential to diagnose CMS because the neurodevelopmental prognosis is quite good[depts.washington.edu]


  • Routine brain MRIs during the etiological evaluation of individuals with hearing loss is not warranted until the frequency of GPSM2 mutations is established.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Etiologies include prenatal infections and exposure to teratogens, chromosomal aberrations, metabolic disorders, genetic syndromes, and brain malformations. These include primary malformative and secondary disruptive lesions.[cerebellumandataxias.biomedcentral.com]
