Case Report

Not a Dandy Walker Malformation but Congenital Cytomegalovirus Infection

S Puvabanditsin, C Dumitrescu, E Garrow, Y Elnahar, DE Ladie, N Phattraprayoon


We report a male neonate who was prenatally diagnosed as having Dandy Walker malformation. Post natal cranial computerised tomography showed periventricular calcifications and ventriculomegaly. Cranial magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated findings that could be interpreted as a Dandy Walker malformation. Aetiologic investigations revealed a positive viral culture and a polymerase chain reaction for cytomegalovirus DNA indicating a congenital cytomegalovirus infection.
