Developmental Abnormalities

Development abnormalities can be secondary to embryologic events that fail to progress normally or may result from destruction of already formed structures. Embryologic events include abnormalities of dorsal induction, ventral induction, migration and cortical organization, neuronal proliferation and differentiation, and myelination. Often multiple distinct developmental abnormalities are present simultaneously.
