    • Agenesis, hypoplasia, and dysplasia of the corpus callosum is most frequently seen in Staffordshire terriers and Miniature Schnauzers, and may be associated with holoprosencephaly or fusion of the ventral portions of the rostral telencephalon. Adipsia or hypodipsia and subsequent hypernatremia, as well as tremors and seizures have been documented in affected animals.
