Our 10-month old son had an ASD, now it is a PFO; VSD; and a heart murmur. We also know he has dysphagia and GERD. When trying to discover the cause of the dysphagia, they did a brain MRI. After the MRI the doctor told us there was nothing. Now we have read the report and it states:
"Incidental pineal cystic change and cerebellat tonsillar ectopia. Mild ventricular prominence can be seen. Further evaluation/follow up can be determined."
What is this? From what I see on line ventricular prominence deals with the heart....but this was a brain scan??
Any insight into this would be greatly appreciated.
