Ultrasonographic differentiation between intracranial supratentorial interhemispheric pathologic cystlike lesions and those related to physiologic median structures is essential because the latter have no clinical relevance, whereas the former may carry a poor prognosis.

Abstract

Ultrasonographic differentiation between intracranial supratentorial interhemispheric pathologic cystlike lesions and those related to physiologic median structures is essential because the latter have no clinical relevance, whereas the former may carry a poor prognosis. We reviewed our experience with 19 consecutive cases of interhemispheric hypoechoic lesions without parenchymal involvement diagnosed between January 1990 and June 1997 to establish their clinical significance and provide prenatal ultrasonographic criteria to distinguish between pathologic cystlike lesions and those related to physiologic midline structures.
