Term Detail
MP term:dilated lateral ventricles
Synonym: dilated ventricle of cerebral hemisphere
Synonym: dilated ventriculus lateralis
Synonym: lateral ventricle dilation
MP id: MP:0000825
Alternate id: MP:0000824
Definition: the luminal space of the lateral ventricles is increased in volume or area, usually with an increase in contained fluid, in the cavity in each of the cerebral hemispheres derived from the cavity of the embryonic neural tube; they are separated from each other by the septum pellucidum, and each communicates with the third ventricle by the foramen of Monro, through which also the choroid plexuses of the lateral ventricles become continuous with that of the third ventricle
