Dengue virus infection in humans can lead to a wide range of clinical manifestations, from mild fever to potentially fatal dengue shock syndrome. The incidence of dengue fever is on the rise in tropical countries. Due to the increasing incidence of dengue fever worldwide, atypical manifestations of the disease are increasingly reported. In this article we report a patient with dengue haemorrhagic fever who presented with reversible splenial lesion syndrome. A 24-year-old Sri Lankan man who presented with fever and confusion was eventually diagnosed to have reversible splenial lesion syndrome based on brain imaging. Clinical, serological and haematological parameters confirmed a diagnosis of dengue haemorrhagic fever. His presentation, assessment, and management are described in this case report. Reversible splenial lesion syndrome is a condition which is radiologically characterized by reversible lesion in the splenium of the corpus callosum. It is associated with infectious and non-infectious

Agenesis of the corpus callosum can occur isolated or as part of a complex congenital syndrome. Patients with isolated agenesis of the corpus callosum may present with severe intellectual disability, although a proportion of affected individuals develop normal intelligence. However, even in patients with no apparent deficits, subtle neuropsychological alterations may occur as the cognitive demand increases with age. Hence, patients with this deffect require a strict follow-up during their postnatal life. Thus, physicians require a better knowledge of the cognitive features of agenesis of the corpus callosum to improve their approach to this cerebral malformation. Here, we report an illustrative case of a school-age child with isolated agenesis of the corpus callosum and normal intelligence. We also provide a literature review about the postnatal screening of neurocognitive deficits in patients with agenesis of the corpus callosum.

Corpus callosotomy is a palliative surgical procedure for the treatment of seizures. As the corpus callosum is critical to the interhemispheric spread of epileptic activity, the procedure seeks to eliminate this pathway. "Efficacy and relatively low permanent morbidity in corpus callosotomy for medically intractable epilepsy have been demonstrated by more than six decades of experience. In addition to seizure reduction, behavior and quality of life may improve."[1] The corpus callosum is usually severed in order to stop epileptic seizures. Once the corpus callosum is cut, the brain has much more difficulty sending messages between the hemispheres. Although the corpus callosum is the largest white matter tract connecting the hemispheres, some limited interhemispheric communication is still possible via the anterior commissure and posterior commissure. When tested in particular situations, it is obvious that information transfer between the hemispheres is reduced. ...

N2 - The goal of the present study was to determine if there are global or regionally specific decreases in callosal area in early Alzheimers disease (AD) and mild cognitive impairment (MCI). In addition, this study examined the corpus callosum of healthy older adults who have subjective cognitive complaints (CC) but perform within normal limits on neuropsychological tests. We used a semi-automated procedure to examine the total and regional areas of the corpus callosum in 22 patients with early AD, 28 patients with amnestic MCI, 28 healthy older adults with cognitive complaints, and 50 demographically matched healthy controls (HC). The AD, MCI, ...
Aging Age-related decline in the commissural fiber tracts that make up the corpus callosum indicate the corpus callosum is involved in memory and executive function. Specifically, the posterior fibers of the corpus callosum are associated with episodic memory. Perceptual processing decline is also related to diminished integrity of occipital fibers of the corpus callosum. Evidence suggests that the genu of the corpus callosum does not contribute significantly to any one cognitive domain in the elderly. As fiber tract connectivity in the corpus callosum declines due to aging, compensatory mechanisms are found in other areas of the corpus callosum and frontal lobe. These compensatory mechanisms, increasing connectivity in other parts of the brain, may explain why elderly individuals still display executive function as a decline of connectivity is seen in regions of the corpus callosum.[7] Older adults compared to younger adults show poorer performance in balance exercises and tests. A decline in ...
left hemispheres of the brain together. Disorders of the corpus callosum, or DCCs, are "conditions in which the corpus callosum does not develop in a typical manner." This important brain superhighway is usually formed by 12 to 16 weeks after conception. However, there are some people born without a corpus callosum at all, this is otherwise known as agenesis of the corpus callosum. My 4 year old son has hypoplasia of the corpus callosum, which means that his corpus callosum is thin and therefore may be less efficient. A few other included disorders are partial agenesis, as in partially absent, and dysgenesis, or malformation, of the corpus callosum.. DCCs, like Autism, are a spectrum disorder, where there is no textbook answer to how happy or healthy someone will be just based off of diagnosis. Many parents are finding out during pregnancy due to the advancement in technology and equipment. Unfortunately, they are not always getting the best advice or support, due to the lack of knowledge on ...

This condition occurs when the callosal fibers may have started to grow, but are unable to cross between the hemispheres. The fibers grow toward the back of the same hemisphere where they began. These fibers form what are called Bundles of Probst. Some smaller connections between the hemispheres develop in most individuals with ACC. These are the anterior commissure, posterior commissure, and hippocampal commissure. However, each of these is at least 40,000 times smaller than the corpus callosum. Thus, they cannot compensate completely for the absence of the corpus callosum. ...
The importance of the corpus callosum for binocular interaction in areas 17 and 18 of the adult cat is still a matter of controversy, since its specific role in integrating information from the two eyes has been suggested by some and questioned by others. We have reanalyzed the problem by assessing binocular interaction for single neurons in areas 17 and 18 of adult cats submitted to section of the posterior two-thirds of the corpus callosum. In 5 cats this interhemispheric disconnection was performed from 10 days to 7 weeks before the electrophysiological recordings; in another cat callosal afferents to the recording sites were at first partially eliminated by an acute lesion of corresponding cortical zones in the other hemisphere, and thereafter completely interrupted by a posterior callosal section performed in the same recording session. Recordings were mainly aimed at the callosal zone of areas 17 and 18, which coincides with the border between these two areas and corresponds to visual ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Axon growth failure following corpus callosum lesions precedes glial reaction in perinatal rats. AU - Ajtai, B. M.. AU - Kálmán, M.. PY - 2000. Y1 - 2000. N2 - The present study compares the glial reactivity and the axon growth following corpus callosum (CC) lesions, in perinatal rats. Lesions were performed on fetal (E17 to E20) and early postnatal (P0 and P2) rats. The reactive glia and the presence of neural fibers were detected by immunohistochemical staining of glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) and neurofilament protein (NFP), respectively. The callosal axons failed (at least in part) to penetrate the lesioned area already after E18 lesions, and the lesioned area was always impenetrable for axons after E20 and P0 lesions. In these cases, the lesioned part of the CC was completely or nearly devoid of GFAP as well as NFP. The distributions of the immunopositivities to GFAP and NFP also coincided with each other, both in the intact part of the CC and along the ...
Conclusions: Atrophy of the CC is associated with cognitive impairment and fatigue. Regional CCI results indicate that these associations are partially spatially segregated. (Source: Multiple Sclerosis)
This study is a cross sectional study of patients diagnosed with clinically isolated syndrome (CIS) and RRMS, who will undergo a series of tests to assess cognitive impairment, fatigue severity and depressive symptoms. Cognitive impairment will be assessed with Multiple Sclerosis Inventory Cognition (MUSIC) and symbol digit modalities test (SDMT), fatigue severity will be measured with the Fatigue Scale for Motor and Cognitive Functions (FSMC) and depressive symptoms with the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI). All tests mentioned above are validated for MS patients. In the second step we will use our large longitudinal database of serial MRI examinations from which a linear measurement of CCI will be retrospectively calculated ...
I am a speech-language pathologist working with a first-grader with partial agenesis of the corpus callosum. He speaks in complete sentences and produces most sounds correctly. However, I have just begun working on his prosody. In our first session addressing voicing issues, he was unable to imitate/approximate exaggerated high and low pitch. His mother reports that he does not hum or sing tunes but he does make voices when playing independently with action figures. I have searched our ASHA professional website but did not find any therapy techniques or suggestions. Do you have any resources that might help me?. Response by JoAnne Tully CCC-SLP (2009). I dont know of any articles or discussions that have directly talked about prosody in children with DCC. I do know, however, that a lot of children with DCC have some degree of apraxia, and prosody disorders often accompany apraxia. The Apraxia-Kids website has a good article by Shelley Velleman about prosody. The link to that article is ...
Here is a rendering of the corpus callosum with some of the grey matter stripped away in order to reveal how extensive its fibers are throughout the cerebral hemispheres.

If the upper part of either hemisphere be removed, at a level about 1.25 cm. above the corpus callosum, the central white matter will be exposed as an oval-shaped area, the centrum ovale minus, surrounded by a narrow convoluted margin of gray substance, and studded with numerous minute red dots (puncta vasculosa), produced by the escape of blood from divided bloodvessels.. If the remaining portions of the hemispheres be slightly drawn apart a broad band of white substance, the corpus callosum, will be observed, connecting them at the bottom of the longitudinal fissure; the margins of the hemispheres which overlap the corpus callosum are called the labia cerebri.. Each labium is part of the cingulate gyrus already described; and the slit-like interval between it and the upper surface of the corpus callosum is termed the callosal sulcus.. If the hemispheres be sliced off to a level with the upper surface of the corpus callosum, the white substance of that structure will be seen connecting the two ...
Agenesis of the corpus callosum is the most frequent brain malformation. This anomaly may be diagnosed by ultrasound screening. In half of these prenatal cases, the anomaly seems to be isolated. In this setting, there are no prospective data concerning the development of these children, preventing any clear information to be delivered to parents. Prenatal diagnostic centers therefore face extremely variable rates of termination of pregnancies (TOP), which can reach up to 80%.. This is a multicentric prospective interventional study whose primary objective is to assess the neurological development at three years of age of children born after prenatal diagnosis of isolated agenesis of the corpus callosum.. Evaluation at three years will include Intellectual Quotient (IQ) quantification using the WPPSI-III, 3rd edition of Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence and evaluation of intra-hemispheric coordination using the Vineland adaptative behaviour scale.. Secondary objectives will ...
Hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy with agenesis of the corpus callosum (HMSN/ACC or ACCPN), also known as Andermann Syndrome, a neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorder, is characterized by severe progressive sensorimotor neuropathy with resulting hypotonia, areflexia, and amyotrophy and variable degrees of dysgenesis of the corpus callosum.NIH ACCPN is inherited as an autosomal recessive, through mutations in the SLC12A6 gene. Several SLC12A6 mutations leading to ACCPN have been identified, including: ...
The corpus callosum is a thick band of nerve fibers that is located at the center of the brain underneath the cerebrum and divides the brain into left and right hemispheres. It allows both sides of the brain to communicate by transferring sensory, cognitive, and motor information between the two hemispheres. The corpus callosum is also involved with eye movement and maintaining the balance of attention and arousal. It changes structurally throughout ones life especially during childhood and adolescence. ...

DISCUSSION. To investigate whether retinal influences on callosal topography are mediated by NMDARs, we studied the topography of callosal linkages in adult rats that had been injected with the NMDAR blocker MK-801 during the P4-P6 critical period. We expected that blockade of NMDARs during this critical period would lead to the development of mirror-symmetric callosal linkages, thus replicating the effect of removing retinal input at P4 (Olavarría and Hiroi, 2003). Instead, we found that pharmacological blockade of NMDARs from P4-P6 did not induce obvious abnormalities in the topography of callosal linkages: callosal linkages were non-mirror symmetric, as in control rats. These results provide evidence that the influences that the eyes exert on callosal topography during the P4-P6 critical period do not opérate through NMDAR-mediated processes. In contrast, we found that interfering with NMDAR function either through MK801-induced blockade of NMDARs starting at P6 or neonatal enucleation ...
No literature review exists on Mycoplasma pneumoniae-associated mild encephalitis/encepharopathy with a reversible splenial lesion (MERS). M.pneumoniae-associated MERS cases were searched till August 2016 using PubMed/Google for English/other-language publications and Ichushi ( http://www.jamas.or.jp/ ) for Japanese-language publications. Inclusion criteria were children fulfilling definition for encephalitis, M.pneumoniae infection, and neuroimaging showing hyperintensity in the splenium of the corpus callosum (SCC) alone (type I) or SCC/other brain areas (type II). We described two children with type I and II M.pneumoniae-associated MERS. Thirteen cases found by the search and our 2 cases were reviewed. Mean age, male/female ratio, duration of prodromal illness was 8.3 years, 1.5 and 3.5 days. The most common neurological symptom was drowsiness, followed by abnormal speech/behavior, ataxia, seizure, delirium, confusion, tremor, hallucination,
Figure 5.9 On the left is a magnetic resonance image (MRI) of the brain of a normal adolescent (age 14). The red arrow points to the corpus callosum, the white bundle of fibers that crosses over the midline. The MRI on the right is of an adolescent with FAS (age 14); the red arrow shows the lack of a corpus callosum. [MRI photos courtesy of Drs. Ed Riley and Sarah Mattson, San Diego State University]. Learn more about MRI. The corpus callosum is important in timing tasks, attention, motor tasks, and coordination. When the corpus callosum fails to develop properly a person tends to have problems with attention needed to perform cognitive (thinking) tasks, poor motor coordination, and even mental retardation. Importantly, these defects in brain function can occur even when facial abnormalities are not present. Because the corpus callosum develops throughout gestation, it is sensitive to alcohol exposure during all stages of pregnancy.. ...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Reaction time was recently recognized as a marker of subtle cognitive and behavioral alterations in the early clinical stages of CADASIL, a monogenic cerebral small-vessel disease. In unselected patients with CADASIL, brain atrophy and lacunes are the main imaging correlates of disease severity, but MR imaging correlates of reaction time in mildly affected patients are unknown. We hypothesized that reaction time is independently associated with the corpus callosum area in the early clinical stages of CADASIL. ...

A number of studies have investigated NPC migration in the presence of EFs, termed galvanotaxis (galvanotaxis) in vitro (Babona-Pilipos et al., 2011, 2015, 2018). In this study, we investigated the effects of biphasic charge-balanced electrical stimulation for galvanotaxis of transplanted NPCs in vivo in the mouse brain. We found that transplanted NPCs had a propensity to migrate laterally along the corpus callosum under baseline conditions and established that endogenous electric potential differences exist along the corpus callosum (more negative laterally compared to medially). This endogenous EF is consistent with the default migration pathway of transplanted NPCs revealing that the corpus callosum is an endogenous migratory pathways that utilizes EFs as a guidance cue in the brain (Cao et al., 2013; Feng et al., 2017). Further, we determined that an applied EF (3-d paradigm) was able to enhance the cathodal distance of cell migration on the corpus callosum, while longer stimulation (6-d ...

One final note: formation of the corpus callosum is a dramatic example of a process that is susceptible to developmental variation. What I mean is this: when patients inherit a mutation that results in callosal agenesis, this phenotype occurs in some patients but not all. This is true even in genetically identical people, like monozygotic twins or triplets (or in lines of genetically identical mice). Though the corpus callosum contains millions of nerve fibres, the initial events that establish it involve very small numbers of cells. These cells, which are located at the medial edge of each cerebral hemisphere, must contact each other to enable the fusion of the two hemispheres, forming a tiny bridge through which the first callosal fibres can cross. Once these are across, the rest seem able to follow easily. Because this event involves very few cells at a specific time in development, it is susceptible to random "noise" - fluctuations in the precise amounts of various proteins in the cells, for ...
Meet Joe. After suffering from years of epilepsy, Joe underwent brain surgery to have his corpus callosum severed. The corpus callosum, also referred to as the colossal commissure, is a thick band of 200-250 million nerve fibers at the longitudinal fissure that facilitates interhemispheric communication in the brain. By having this band severed, Joe prevented the spread of epileptic seizure from one hemisphere to the other.. Continue reading →. ...
The mammalian neocortex is parcellated into anatomically and functionally distinct areas. The establishment of area-specific neuronal diversity and circuit connectivity enables distinct neocortical regions to control diverse and specialized functional outputs, yet underlying molecular controls remain largely unknown. Here, we identify a central role for the transcriptional regulator Lim-only 4 (Lmo4) in establishing the diversity of neuronal subtypes within rostral mouse motor cortex, where projection neurons have particularly diverse and multi-projection connectivity compared with caudal motor cortex. In rostral motor cortex, we report that both subcerebral projection neurons (SCPN), which send projections away from the cerebrum, and callosal projection neurons (CPN), which send projections to contralateral cortex, express Lmo4, whereas more caudal SCPN and CPN do not. Lmo4-expressing SCPN and CPN populations are comprised of multiple hodologically distinct subtypes. SCPN in rostral layer Va ...

In the 1950s and 1960s, Roger Sperry performed experiments on cats, monkeys, and humans to study functional differences between the two hemispheres of the brain in the United States. To do so he studied the corpus callosum, which is a large bundle of neurons that connects the two hemispheres of the brain. Sperry severed the corpus callosum in cats and monkeys to study the function of each side of the brain. He found that if hemispheres were not connected, they functioned independently of one another, which he called a split-brain.. Format: Articles Subject: Experiments ...

Twelve patients who had brain metastases and received fractionated whole brain radiation therapy (WBRT) (30 or 37.5G) were included in the study. Diffusion weighted images were acquired pre RT, end of RT, and 1-month post-RT. The fornix, cingulum and corpus callosum were extracted from diffusion weighted images by combining fiber tracking and segmentation methods based upon characteristics of the fiber bundles. The ingulum was segmented by a seed-based tractography, the fornix by an ROI-based tractography, and the corpus callosum by a level-set segmentation algorithm. The radiation-induced longitudinal changes in diffusion indices of the structures were evaluated ...
The radiation of the corpus callosum has been made visible by the removal of tissue from the medial surface of the hemisphere including the cingulum, gyrus cinguli, paracentral lobule, and parts of the superior frontal gyrus and superior parietal lobule. The parieto-occipital fissure bounds the dissected area posteriorly. In the dissection there is a complex interlacing of the radiations of the corpus callosum and internal capsule together with the fibers of numerous association systems. This makes it impossible to display the course of most of the fiber bundles comprising the corona radiata ...
In this study of middle-aged adults with type 1 diabetes, the Hp 1 allele was associated with greater WMH localized in the interhemispheric connecting fibers of the corpus callosum. This association appeared to be largely driven by diabetes duration, which strongly correlated with WMH and the presence of at least one Hp 1 allele. However, although adjusting for duration rendered the Hp-total brain WMH association nonsignificant, it did not eliminate the Hp-total corpus callosum WMH association.. During the past decade, Hp has been emerging as a major risk factor for the development of diabetic CVD, with most studies having focused on type 2 diabetes. Indeed, five longitudinal studies showed significantly increased cardiovascular risk with Hp 2-2, although a similar association has generally not been observed in nondiabetic populations (5-9). Moreover, despite numerous trial failures to demonstrate cardiovascular benefit with antioxidant supplementation, three trials provided evidence that the ...
