DUQUE PARRA, Jorge Eduardo. Cavum Septum Pellucidum: Finding from Neuroanatomical Dissection. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2012, vol.30, n.4, pp.1508-1511. ISSN 0717-9502.

A marked cavitation in the septum pellucidum level is reported, a great cavum septum pellucidum of an adult in the closed space generally recognized as the central nervous system, which is evident in itself, at certain stages of intrauterine life. This cavitation is usually absent in the healthy adult, but in some people with schizophrenia and pugilistic dementia, the cavity can be regarded and found relatively frequently. This finding was found randomly in one of forty-two adult brains, superficially valued from the gross anatomy as normal. This finding may be associated with behavioral disorders, taking in to account that the brain corresponded to a person from a psychiatric hospital.

Keywords : Cavum septum pellucidum; Neuroanatomy; Dissection.
