Show the Cavum Vargae

The cavum vergae is the posterior extension of the cavum septum pellucidum. The cavity was first described by the Italian anatomist, Andrea Verga, in 1851. It may exist as a separate cavity rather than communicating with the cavum septum pellucidum. Its incidence is estimated at approximately 2%.
