What is Agenesis of Corpus Callosum?

(Symptoms, Causes & Treatment)

Agenesis of the corpus callosum (ACC) is a rare congenital disorder involving a complete or partial absence of the corpus callosum. The condition occurs when the corpus callosum, the band of white matter connecting the two hemispheres in the brain, fails to develop normally, typically during pregnancy. The fibers that would otherwise form the corpus callosum become longitudinally oriented within each hemisphere and form structures called Probst bundles.
