Prognosis for Agenesis of the corpus callosum

Prognosis for Agenesis of the corpus callosum: ACC does not cause death in the majority of patients. Although many children with the disorder will lead normal lives and have average intelligence, careful neuropsychological testing reveals subtle differences in higher cortical function compared to individuals of the same age and education without ACC. Children with ACC accompanied by developmental delay and/or seizure disorders should be screened for metabolic disorders. Mental retardation is nonprogressive.
