More precisely, these cerebellar regions are lateral portions of cerebellar hemispheres
and the dentate nucleus, which project to the cerebral cortex much more than any other cerebellar region, and thus, the term "neocerebellum" is used (10).
Transcerebellar (via posterior fontanelle): posterior horn of lateral ventricles, tentorium, cerebellar hemispheres
Diffusion-weighted images from MRI 5 days after admission revealed symmetric diffusion hyperintensity within the bilateral cerebellar hemispheres
, bilateral caudate heads, and hippocampi (Figure 2).
Brain capillary telangiectasias are typically found in the pons, (1,2,4,5) but are also commonly located in the medulla, caudate nucleus, cerebrum, (3) cerebellar hemispheres
, and in the spinal cord.
Like the cerebral hemi spheres, the cerebellar hemispheres
are formed by paired dorsal swellings that grow individually and are aligned at the midline.
Sampling within the cerebellar hemispheres
and vermis was considered relevant because of the fine motor deficits and noted problems with postural sway and balance associated with lead exposure (Bhattacharya et al.
1) confirmed the Dandy-Walker malformation on the basis of an absent vermis, cystic dilatation of the fourth ventricle, an enlarged posterior fossa, upward displacement of the torcula and splayed hypoplastic cerebellar hemispheres
