Agenesis of corpus callosum (ACC) is a congenital defect in which the connections between the child’s right and left portion of the brain are not fully developed. It affects 1 to 7 out of every 4,000 babies born, according to statistics.
The corpus callosum binds the left and right sides of the brain. It is made up of 200 million nerve fibers that transmit information.
Additionally, agenesis of the corpus callosum (ACC) can manifest itself in a variety of ways, including:
- Dysgenesis of the corpus callosum
- Partial corpus callosum agenesis
- Hypogenesis of the corpus callosum
- Hypoplasia of the corpus callosum
