The mega cisterna magna is a congenital developmental malformation which in the majority of instances is symptomless and does not require further study or surgical treatment. However, differential diagnosis with other cerebellar diseases is often necessary especially in newborn infants. Ultrasonographic recognition of the mega cisterna magna in a newborn infant is reported. The reported case demonstrates the usefulness of the ultrasonographic technique in the study of the posterior cranial fossa abnormalities of newborn infants.
