Aqueduct of Sylvius atresia

DA: 792

Developmental anomaly information

Definition: The aqueduct of Sylvius is a narrow structure that allows communication between the third and fourth ventricles. The cerebrospinal fluid produced in the choroid plexus of the lateral ventricles and the roof of the third ventricle travels through the aqueduct of Sylvius to reach the fourth ventricle on its way to the subarachnoid space. Congenital aqueduct of Sylvius stenosis or atresia may be sporadic or of X-linked inheritance. X-linked inheritance (Bickers-Adams syndrome) accounts for 2% of patients with aqueductal stenosis. Boys with Bickers-Adams syndrome often have flexus adductus thumb deformity .
