After you duck from Agent 86's comment (I agree with him, it is an acquired abnormality that often if not almost always has onset in the perinatal or post-natal period, so it isn't "congenital" any more than it is a "malformation") you can prepare to take cover over the arguments over the terms "porencephaly" and "schizencephaly", about which we neuropathologists tend to differ in usage compared to our colleagues in neurosurgery, pediatric neurology, and neuroradiology.

OK. If Netter were still alive, I'd email him to say that perinatal telencephalic leukoencephalopathy is NOT a malformation. Thanks, Agent 86 and shipcolldoc. Nice catch.
