Can a choroid plexus cyst cause a double crown?

My daughter, when in utero, was found to have a choroid plexus cyst, which closed up at 28 weeks' gestation. (She has no genetic abnormalities and is very intelligent.) She has a double crown, and no one else in the family does. Could the cyst have caused it?

  • I doubt it. The choroid plexus has more to do with spinal fluid production than gene expression. It might just be a recessive gene that both of you have carried, and she got it from both sides, and that's just how that gene is being expressed (her phenotype). That's the kind of thing that's more about gene expression from her DNA than from anything in the brain.
