Cerebral structure in borderline personality disorder.

Author information

University of California, Los Angeles.


Computed tomographic (CT) scans of brains of patients with borderline personality disorder and normal volunteers were analyzed for ventricle-brain ratios, third ventricular size, and evidence of frontal lobe atrophy. There were no significant differences between the two groups on any of these measures except for a narrower third ventricle in borderline patients, which could be accounted for by the narrower third ventricle observed in female subjects overall. While borderline patients may show signs of subtle neurological dysfunction, they do not show evidence of structural brain pathology.
