Abstract

Objective: To determine by radiology the different etiologies of psychomotor delays (PMD) in Lomé (Togo). Material and Method: Retrospective study of 12 months in the radiology department of CAMPUS Teaching Hospital, concerned images of CT and MRI scans of children 0-16 years of age with PMD. Results: The mean age was 4.4 years +/- 4.35. The result was pathological in 69.63% of the cases.Cerebral atrophy was the most frequent lesion (40.50%), followed by hydrocephalus (23.14%). The congenital stenosis of the Sylvius aqueduct was the most frequent malformation (37.93%). Triventricular hydrocephalus accounted for 45.61% of hydrocephalus. The most common tumor lesions were choroid plexus carcinoma and craniopharyngioma (28.57% each). Meningo-encephalitis accounted for half of infectious cases.
