We report five cases of congenital muscular dystrophy with central nervous system involvement of the Fukuyama type (FCMD) in which cerebral cortical dysplasia was not uniform even in the same brain. We have categorized the dysplasia into three major patterns, each with a predictable topography despite individual variations. Cerebellar micropolygyria was localized to the dorsal halves of each hemisphere. Aberrant fascicles of myelinated nerve fibers, closely associated with micropolygyria, were… CONTINUE READING
