Postnatal onset cortical dysplasia associated with infarction of white matter
Brain Research , Volume 1121 - Issue 1 p. 250- 255
On MRI at 35 weeks of a boy born at 25 weeks, focal disorganization of the cortex was observed near a frontal venous infarct developed in the first week. Disruption of the final steps of cell migration, injury to the subplate and/or disruption of corticospinal axons are possible mechanisms behind it. Preterms with white matter lesions at or below 25 weeks postconceptional age should be scrutinized for cortical dysplasia.
