Abstract

Megalencephaly, polymicrogyria, polydactyly, and hydrocephalus (MPPH) syndrome has been recently recognized and is very rare. Each case reported so far has demonstrated hydrocephalus to varying degrees. We report an infant with MPPH syndrome, but lacking frank hydrocephalus. The additional finding of an abnormally elongated pituitary infundibulum has not been described in this syndrome and, along with the presence of a regressing cystic cavum septum pellucidum, suggests that chronic underlying hydrocephalus may have been present.
