Term Detail
MP term:dilated third ventricle
Synonym: dilated 3rd ventricle
Synonym: dilated ventricle of diencephalon
Synonym: dilated ventriculus tertius
Synonym: third ventricle dilation
MP id: MP:0000827
Definition: the luminal space of the third ventricle is increased in volume or area, usually with an increase in contained fluid, in the narrow cleft inferior to the corpus callosum, within the diencephalon, between the paired thalami; its floor is formed by the hypothalamus, its anterior wall by the lamina terminalis, and its roof by ependyma; it communicates with the fourth ventricle by the cerebral aqueduct, and with the lateral ventricles by the interventricular foramina
