ABSTRACT


Ectopic neurohypophysis is a pituitary gland abnormality, which can accompany growth hormone deficiency associated with dwarfism. Here we present magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings of a rare case of ectopic neurohypophysis, corpus callosum dysgenesis, and periventricular neuronal heterotopia coexisting, with a review of the literature.
Keywords: Corpus Callosum Dysgenesis, Ectopic Neurohypophysis, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Periventricular Neuronal Heterotopia
