Clinical and neuroimaging characteristics of corpus callosum infarction

Takeaway

  • Acute callosal infarction often presents with higher neurological disorders (e.g. cognitive decline, mental disorders, sleep disturbance) as early symptoms, and computed tomography (CT) fails to detect 76% of MRI-positive cases 24 h after presentation.

Why this matters

  • Delayed diagnosis and management of acute callosal infarction is common; earlier recognition is required to expedite treatment and improve the long-term prognosis for this rare condition with complex and non-specific clinical manifestations.
