Term Detail
MP term:enlarged third ventricle
Synonym: enlarged 3rd ventricle
Synonym: enlarged ventriculus tertius
Synonym: increased third ventricle size
Synonym: increased ventriculus tertius size
MP id: MP:0008536
Definition: increased size of 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
Number of paths to term: 3
