Congenital brain anomalies are rare among the congenital anomalies of various organ systems. It is important to diagnose these conditions at the earliest due to its far reaching neurological deficit and detrimental outcome. Most of the congenital brain anomalies can be reliably diagnose by neuroimaging (computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging) of brain. Radiologist and treating physician should be aware of various specific imaging appearances and unique signs of these anomalies to avoid delay in diagnosis and thereby further treatment. A widely accepted classification of brain anomalies with each representative radiological image are illustrated with its distinctive findings.
