Currarino triad: concurrent US and MRI diagnosis in the fetus and the mother

, : Currarino triad: concurrent US and MRI diagnosis in the fetus and the mother. Prenatal Diagnosis 22(11): 1005-1010

We report an unusual case of the complete Currarino triad diagnosed in a fetus at 21 weeks' gestation by means of prenatal ultrasonography (US). The highly suspicious findings in the fetus were accompanied by analogous US findings in the mother who suffered from mild symptoms of up to that time unrecognized Currarino triad. Consecutively, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) confirmed the findings simultaneously in the fetus and in her mother. This is the first report describing the prenatal diagnosis of Currarino triad without the background of positive family history. To our knowledge, the prenatal MRI findings of Currarino triad have not yet been published.

Production of new neurons in the adult hippocampus decreases with age; this decline may underlie age-related cognitive impairment.
