Note the abnormal vessels in the left-sided schizencephalic cleft ﬊. (Left) Axial NECT in a 19-yearold man in the ER for trauma shows a "nipple" or outpouching of the left lateral ventricle ﬇ that extends into a full-thickness cerebrospinal fluid cleft ﬈. The cleft is lined with heterotopic gray matter st.
