Classical signs and appearances in pediatric neuroradiology: a pictorial review.

Atalar MH, Salk I, Egilmez H - Pol J Radiol (2014)

Bottom Line: Radiological practice includes classification of illnesses with similar characteristics through recognizable signs.In this report, twenty-eight important and frequently seen neuroradiological signs in childhood are presented and described using X-rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance (MR) images, illustrations and photographs.

f7-poljradiol-79-479: An appearance similar to “figure eight” due to lissencephaly in the axial plane on CT examination.

Mentions: Lissencephaly is a disorder caused by defective neuronal migration between the 8–14th gestational week and characterized by a lack of development of gyri and sulci. Lissencephaly is classified into two subgroups: complete (type 1 – agyria) or partial (type 2 – pachygyria). Type 1 lissencephaly is characterized by shallow sylvian fissures that are vertically oriented. In this type of lissencephaly, brain takes on an hour-glass or figure-8 appearance due to compression at the middle part by sylvian fissures on axial imaging (Figure 7) [7].
