Hi,

Yes, there may be a relationship between the two. Tuft of excess hair maybe a neurocutaneous marker. Thus, it is mandatory to do an MRI of the brain to rule out any pathology associated with this condition.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Rajmohan, Pediatrician

Hi We got a Ultrasound done for my wife who is 30 weeks pregnant . All her previous USG and blood reports were negative for any NTD or Down syndrome . However the current USG shows that the distance between lateral ventricles is 10.4mm and has been termed as borderline ventriculomegaly. What are the chances that this distance will reduce over the coming weeks and how come none of the previous reports and USG failed to note this?

Please can you help me, I am from England and finding it very hard to get some medical support for my daughter. She is 10 1/2 years old and when I was pregnant with her she had Ventriculomegaly this was found out at me 12 week scan. I went through my pregnancy knowing this and the ventrical spacing enlarging and at 8 months pregnant I was told everything was normal again. I was pleased but when she was 18 months old I noticed her speech was delayed and resulted in speech therapy until she was 7 years old. She also struggles with retaining information and is currently working a year lower than her age. Please can you help with trying to get help or some advise.



Thanks
