0 Circumventricular organs (CVOs)

Reactions: 


Circumventricular organs (CVOs) are structures in the brain that are characterized by their extensive vasculature and lack of a normal blood brain barrier (BBB).
  1. Area postrema
  2. Organum vasculosum of the lamina terminalis (OVLT)
  3. Subfornical organ (SFO)
  4. Posterior pituitary
  5. Median eminence
  6. Pineal gland



Note:
Inclusion of Choroid Plexus in CVOs is debatable , but it is also outside BBB. Thus enhance on CECT.
