Dysgenesis of the Corpus Callosum

The corpus callosum normally develops from an anterior to posterior direction. Dysgenesis of the corpus callosum includes both complete and partial absence. Absence can occur as an isolated lesion or in conjunction with many other development abnormalities. In partial absence, the more anterior part of the corpus callosum is present.
