MRI evaluation of pathologies affecting the corpus callosum: A pictorial essay.

Author information

Bharati Hospital and Research Centre, Pune, Maharashtra, India.


The corpus callosum is a midline cerebral structure and has a unique embryological development pattern. In this article, we describe the pathophysiology and present imaging findings of various typical/atypical conditions affecting the corpus callosum. Since many of these pathologies have characteristic appearances on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and their therapeutic approaches are poles apart, ranging from medical to surgical, the neuroradiologist should be well aware of them.
