The septum pellicidum is a thin midline brain structure the function of which is poorly understood. Despite its small size, it is the site of a considerable number of anatomical variants, congenital anomalies, and acquired lesions. The review presents the imaging appearances of some of the more common congenital and acquired lesions of the septum pellucidum.
