Abstract

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.

我們報導一名在產前診斷為 Dandy Walker 畸型的男嬰,產從頭顱 CT 顯示腦室周圍鈣化和腦室擴張。頭顱磁力共震影像提示為 Dandy Walker 畸型。病原學化驗發現病毒培養陽性,以及巨細胞病毒 DNA 聚合酶鏈反應顯示為先天性巨細胞病毒感染。
