Question: Hi I Am 5 month pregnant my baby lateral ventrical measures 8mm, is it a concern?
Answer: The same happened with me during the 7th month.. Left ventricle was 8.1mm and Dr told upto 10mm, it's not an issue but she needs to monitor.. Hence suggested a scan post 3 weeks... I underwent the scan and it has become 7.6, though not much less... But Dr told it's okay,,, Her concern was just that it should not go up... Dr may monitor ur case even and suggest a scan... Mostly things would be all normal... Don't worry... Best Wishes :)

Question: is lateral ventricles 8mm size normal?
Please do get the repeat scan done.
It will help your doctor monitor the ventricle size.
Based on the growth or size of ventricle your doctor may advise further tests like fetal MRI.
If it is mildly enlarged without associated complications then there is a possibility to resolve on its own. however in severe cases it could lead to neurological problems if not treated timely.
Certain procedures may be required to be done after birth too with help of neurosurgeons.
