Abstract

We report the unique CNS findings in a patient with a proximal chromosome 14q interstitial deletion. Conventional MR imaging allowed the clear delineation of agenesis of the corpus callosum, SOD, and diffuse lissencephaly. DTI tractography played a significant role in the evaluation of the proximal 14q deletion - associated abnormalities, delineating the extent of the dysmorphic connections of the Probst bundles and clarifying that apparent areas of heterotopias were the corticospinal tracts.
