Pontocerebellar hypoplasia type 2 (MRI) (6)

Coronal T2-weighted image of 2- to 3-month-old girl with PCH2 showing the typical configuration of the cerebellum with flattened hemispheres resting against the tentorium and a relatively spared vermis that protrudes downward in the midline. Destructive cysts present in both cerebellar hemispheres are marked by asterisks. This feature can be seen in approximately 1% of patients with PCH2.
