Accurate ultrasound recognition of the cavum septi pellucidi (CSP) and the cavum vergae (CV) in the newborn is reported. CSP was visualized in 60% and CV in 16.3% of 122 newborn infants. The usefulness of a posterior coronal scan passing through the bodies of the lateral ventricles is emphasized in order to obtain a more precise identification of CSP and CV. Possible misinterpretation between CSP, CV and other intracranial structures is discussed, and criteria for differential diagnosis are included.
