INTRODUCTION Corpus callosum is the largest and mostimportant of the forebrain commissural tracts connecting the two cerebral hemispheres.This white matter tract plays essential role in sensory, motor,and cognitive signal transmission across the right and left cerebral hemispheres. Anatomically, the corpus callosum comprises five parts–rostrum, genu, body,i sthmus,and splenium.Genu is the most anterior region connecting the lateral and medial frontal lobes,while the splenium is the most posterior region.Body is the longest segment of corpus callosum,while isthmus is shorter and narrower area that lies between the posterior body and splenium.
