Cerebral ventriculomegaly

DA: 61

Developmental anomaly information

Definition: Enlargement of the lateral ventricles (as is the third ventricle) to between 10 mm and 15 mm in width is called ventriculomegaly.The underlying pathogenesis is due to an imbalance between CSF production and absorption, resulting in accumulation of CSF within the ventricles. This may result from a number of causes such as obstruction of flow, excessive secretion (rare), or impaired absorption.


  • Fetal lateral cerebral ventriculomegaly
