Deformed head. Coloured magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of an axial (horizontal) section through a 7 year old child's abnormally large, misshapen head. The front of the head is at top. It shows herniation of the left occipital lobe onto the right side (white). The resulting compression of the vascular supply has resulted in encephalomalacia; softening of the brain due to degenerative changes in nervous tissue.
