We describe the finding of cavum veli interpositi (CVI) on fetal ultrasound and MRI and the postnatal MRI and developmental follow-up in two cases. The first case was diagnosed on fetal ultrasound at 33 weeks' gestation and confirmed on fetal MRI. No abnormalities were detected on postnatal examinations and the brain MRI at 1 year of age showed no changes. At 4 years of age, his growth and development were normal.The second case was diagnosed with CVI on fetal ultrasound and MRI at 33.5 weeks' gestation. Postnatal examination showed no abnormalities, and brain MRI at 8 months of age revealed that the CVI was unchanged, but there was a dilated cavum septum pellucidum and cavum vergae. Her growth and development during the first 4 years of life were normal. CVI is a rare fetal ultrasound finding, which seems to be benign. However, further neurodevelopmental follow-up is needed to confirm this observation.
