    Porencephalic cyst. Notice that the cyst opens to the ventricular space, expands into the periventricular white matter and is not lined by cortex but by gliotic tissue.

     
    Area of Interest: Neuroradiology brain; Imaging Technique: Experimental; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Pathology;

    Open-lip schizencephaly (type II). Notice the wide cleft from cortical surface to the ependymal margin, lined by dysplastic cortical grey matter.
