Pediatric Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum

What is agenesis of the corpus callosum?

The corpus callosum is a part of the brain. Its nerve fibers connect the two sides (cerebral hemispheres) of the brain. Agenesis of the corpus callosum is a birth defect that happens when this structure does not develop properly.

There is a broad range of outcomes for babies born with agenesis of the corpus callosum, ranging from essentially normal function in the mildest cases to a range of potential health and developmental problems as severity increases.
