Chest 60; Homunculus

 

The index X-ray came from a child with spastic paraparesis and a sensory deficit in whom the brain image of the body was damaged.

The overlying drawing was by my five year old grand daughter, and I was surprised, it is so like the homunculus on the sensory cortex of the brain.

The brash childish colours fit well with this image.

This is a picture of a model of the cortical homunculus.
