Furthermore, Vasco et al., through brain imaging, disclosed the prevalence of a simplified gyral
pattern, malformations of cortical development, abnormalities of the corpus callosum, decreased brain volume, ventriculomegaly, and hypoplasia of the cerebellum or brainstem in neonates affected by the ZV (7).
enhancement of the cortex appears usually one week after the first symptoms .
(d) Abnormalities of gyral
formation (incidental finding).
The Destrieux atlas involves both gyral
and sulcal structures for bilateral hemispheric parcellation.
(2003) measured the density of gray matter in 176 healthy people aged 7-87 years by mapping 35 sulcal and gyral
landmarks for each hemisphere on both the lateral and interhemispheric surfaces .
Images were realigned to the first volume in the time series to correct for head motion (<2mm translation, <1[degrees] rotation), resampled to a 2 mm isotropic voxel size, spatially normalized into a standard stereotactic space (Montreal Neurological Institute template) using a 12-parameter nonlinear warping, and smoothed to minimize noise and residual differences in gyral
anatomy with a Gaussian filter, set at 6 mm full-width at half-maximum.
They are characterized by gyral
edema on T1 weighted images and high signal intensity on T2-weighted and T2 FLAIR (87.7% specificity) [27-29].
MRI brain revealed subtle gyral
hyperintensity on diffusion images in the high frontal lobe, possibly seizure related gyral
oedema or meningoencephalitis.
The possible anatomical locations for its occurrence with a similar incidence are the brain parenchyma, appearing as a focal hematoma or petechial gyral
bleeding, or the subarachnoid space [43,44].
In addition, of the 8 infants with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies, 7 (88%) had an enlarged cisterna magna, 7 (88%) had delayed myelination, 6 (75%) had a simplified gyral
pattern, and 3 (38%) had hypoplasia of corpus callosum.
The clinical findings in microcephaly include marked cerebral atrophy and ventriculomegaly, extensive intracranial calcifications, simplified gyral
patterns, dysgenenis of the corpus collosum, and cerebellar hypoplasia (60).
The earliest sign of venous infarct is gyral
swelling, which is often extremely subtle and only appreciable by noticing the effacement of the adjacent sulci (Figure 3).
