Disproportionate enlargement of the sylvian fissures (ESF) on MRI of an infant's CNS suggests underdevelopment of the cortical operculum. We reviewed charts of infants with isolated ESF. Conditions associated with ESF included feeding difficulties and facial dysmorphism (syndromic or nonsyndromic). There may be an embryologic link between growth of the opercular cortex and development of the face.
