Question of the Week

Question :
Posted On : 04 Feb 2024
I have a newborn delivered at term per GA, with no issues, his antenatal scan showed prominent lateral ventricles at 26 weeks (9 mm), and a repeat scan at 32 weeks showed 6 mm, after birth, I got a USG cranium which showed both lateral ventricles are prominent (left more than right) which are 6 mm and 4mm respectively, how to go about the case, what are possible D/D of prominent lateral ventricles?

Expert Answer :
Asymmetrical slight enlargement of lateral ventricles is a normal variant in most cases, although children with this finding are thought to show soft neurological signs and may have a higher incidence of trisomy = hence we do worry antenatally. Postnatally if the baby is NOT dysmorphic = just regular follow-up is ok and nothing else needs to be done.
