Three members of one family, diagnosed as dyslexic, are described. All of them have variations of midline cavity: cavum vergae or cavum septum pellucidum, diagnosed by neuroradiological examination. In contrast, the non dyslexic members of the same family have no neuroanatomical congenital variations. We raise the possibility of a functional correlation between the dyslexia and the anatomical findings in the affected members of this family.
