Malformations of cortical development (MCD) are a group of disorders characterized by a congenital abnormal structure of the cerebral cortex. In general, malformations are defined as structural abnormalities caused by a disturbance in cell organization or function within a tissue type. When a disturbance results in an abnormal structure of the cerebral cortex we call this: malformations of cortical development. MCD are heterogeneous as a group, as they include several different structural abnormalities, and they have a diverse array of causes, both genetic and environmental.
