Cerebral malformations are of fundamental importance in the clinical diagnosis of Aicardi Syndrome (AS). Some of these anomalies like callosal agenesis, cysts formation, posterior fossa anomalies and gross interhemispheric asymmetry are easily observed in the prenatal period with the use of foetal Magnetic Resonance Images (MRI). We present two cases of female newborns with cerebral MRI performed in the prenatal period and further diagnosed with AS. With the increase use of foetal MRI, AS will be easier suspected in the prenatal period in a female fetus with typical brain anomalies.
