Having a child born with a congenital defect is traumatic for the parents and family. Some congenital anomalies can be corrected resulting in good quality of life, and few others may grossly affect the life of children because of the long-term effects. One such anomaly is agenesis of the corpus callosum which is a brain anomaly where the nerve fibres connecting the left and right hemispheres of the brain are completely or partially absent. Many factors are associated with the presence of the anomaly. The clinical manifestations and the extent of neurological dysfunctions are related to the magnitude of defect. Symptom-specific supportive management, enhancement of growth and development and parental support interventions are key to managing children with agenesis corpus callosum.
