X-linked Periventricular Heteropopia is a disease that develops during gestation when the neurons that should normally form the cerebral cortex do not migrate and instead form clusters around the ventricles. This disease is most likely caused by a mutation on the FLNA gene on the X-chromosome. Because it is an X-linked disease, the majority of people with the disease are males; however, most males die in infancy and never present the symptoms of X-linked Periventricular Heterotopia. Despite the initial disease development occurring during gestation, the symptoms often do not present themselves until the patient is in her early teens. Symptoms of X-linked Periventricular Heterotopia include seizures, dyslexia, vascular problems and depression, among others. Fortunately, most people who have X-linked Periventricular Heterotopia have normal intelligence.
