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.

Axial T2-weighted MRI image at the level of the pontomedullary junction demonstrating the 4th ventricle that is shaped like a “bat wing” (arrow). In addition, axial T2-weighted MR image showing molar tooth sign (arrow).

f25-poljradiol-79-479: Axial T2-weighted MRI image at the level of the pontomedullary junction demonstrating the 4th ventricle that is shaped like a “bat wing” (arrow). In addition, axial T2-weighted MR image showing molar tooth sign (arrow).

Mentions: Bat wing 4th ventricle sign refers to the morphology of the fourth ventricle in the Joubert anomaly and related syndromes. The absence of the vermis with apposed cerebellar hemispheres give the fourth ventricle an appearance reminiscent of a bat with its wings outstretched. It is best demonstrated in axial imaging (Figure 25) and could be easily missed in sagittal and coronal images [29].
