    Sagittal T1-weighted image reveals an abnormal perisylvian fissure extending to the parietal convexity (white arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Congenital;

    Axial T2-weighted image shows thickening and hyperintensity of the grey matter around the sylvian fissure due to polymicrogyria (arrowhead). Note the contralateral subependymal grey matter heterotopia (asterisk).

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Congenital;

    Coronal T2-weighted image shows a vertically oriented sylvian fissure. Note the thickening and hyperintensity of the grey matter around the sylvian fissure due to polymicrogyria (arrowheads).
