Pediatric Balint’s Syndrome Variant: A Possible Diagnosis in Children
T2 axial and T1 sagittal MRI brain scans of the 5 children described. Cases (a)–(c)—bilateral symmetric parietooccipital gliosis (arrowhead) with regional white matter volume loss, thinning in the posterior body, isthmus, and splenium of the corpus callosum (white arrow) being evident. Associated white matter hyperintensities and ventricular dilatation are seen. Case (d)—bilateral symmetric parietal gliosis was seen (arrowhead) with marked thinning of the isthmus and splenium of the corpus callosum (long white arrow). Case (e)—a near normal scan with prominence of the atria and mild shortening of the corpus callosum and splenium, with thinning of the splenium.
