Displasie corticali familiari: Studio clinico-RM

Translated title of the contribution: Familial cortical dysplasia: MR-clinical correlation in three families

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Clinical and MRI studies in relatives of patients with conical dysplasia (CD) can provide a new insight to the genetic aspect of this disease, in which some genetic anomaly in one of the three main process of cortical formation: proliferation, migration and organization, is one of the most frequent cause of the malformation. Three new families with more than one relative with CD were reported: a) Proband with lissencephaly and mother with bifrontal band heterotopia (X-linked lissencephaly) b) Proband with diffuse biopercolar CD; the sister, the mother, and the grandmother with focal biopercolar CD; the two aunt with mild intellectual impairment but apparently normal MRI c) Two sisters, monozygotic twins with biopercolar CD.
