There is marked hydrocephalus (C). Note that the skull base is abnormally flat (platybasia) but the size of the posterior fossa is normal. Figure 5. A child with severe developmental brain problems including rhombencephalosynapsis. T2-weighted images in the sagittal (A), axial (B) and coronal (C) planes shown no vermian structure at all, the two cerebellar hemispheres are fused directly. There is mild tonsillar descent. Supratentorially there is severe hypogenesis of the corpus callosum and a large posterior interhemispheric cyst.

Rostral Vermian Cortical Dysplasia This is a relatively recently described condition (13) in which there is defective foliation of the rostral vermis (and to a lesser extent onto the hemispheres) best seen on coronal images. Demaerel and colleagues described 15 patients who showed varying degrees of this abnormality on MR imaging, three of which also had supratentorial abnormalities of cortical formation as well. The clinical effects of this abnormality in isolation are uncertain at present. Developmental Abnormalities Associated with a Small Posterior Fossa A small bony posterior fossa is the characteristic finding of the Chiari 2 deformity, which is found invariably associated with open spine malformations such as myelomeningocele (Fig.
