The normal human body is known to exhibit bilateral asymmetry in many of its structures. The brain is not an exception to this general rule. Literature search shows many studies done on the asymmetric pattern of the lateral ventricles but, there is dearth of similar information in the Indian population. This study was thus planned to prove the asymmetry of lateral ventricles in term born infants in Indian population. It was conducted in a tertiary care hospital on 101 term born infants. The width of the lateral ventricles and the cerebral hemispheres were measured by performing neurosonography through the anterior fontanelle. The mean and the standard deviation were calculated. The unpaired‘t’ test was applied and the probability value was determined. The study proved that there was no bilateral asymmetry seen in the ventricular measurements of the term born infants.

Key words:
Neurosonography, Lateral ventricular width, Hemispheric width, Anterior fontanelle, Bilateral asymmetry
