Hi Ms Swarnasree,



Thank you for posting your query.



First of all, I would like to reassure you that these reports are within normal limits.



Normal hippocampi is a good news, as volume loss (atrophy) of hippocampi may suggest severe epilepsy and need for using anti-epileptic drugs for a long time. Hippocampal volume is also decreased in cases of Alzheimer's disease.



Hippocampus volume changes with age, however, a volume more than 2 cu cc is definitely normal.



I hope it helps.



Please get back if you require any additional information.



Best wishes,
