Abstract

This paper illustrates the cases of two infants with an identical appearance of a periventricular band (PVB) of increased echogenicity on cranial sonography, shown on CT to be due to edema in one and calcification in the other. Such a PVB due to edema has not been reported previously, and its similarity to calcification on sonography is emphasized.
