Objective: Cavum septum pellucidum (CSP) and cavum vergae (CV) spaces are relatively rare. During neurology and neurosurgery examination of patients with head computed tomography (CT) scan and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), CSP and CV were found accidentally. CT scan and MRI provides exquisite depiction of the central nervous system anatomy. The incidence of those unique spaces reported from many country, but never been reported from Indonesia.

Methods: We reported some observations of the patient that incidentally seen in their imaging (CSP and CV) that found in our center, the Department of Neurosurgery, Dr. Hasan Sadikin Hospital, Bandung, Indonesia.

Results: This is the first reported incidental finding of CSP and CV from Indonesia, 13 cases in one-year period. Since the existence of CSP and CV usually asymptomatic, clinician seem don’t really care to put it in their report.

Conclusion: The presence of CSP and CV as a common incidental finding can be more revealed in our country and adding the evidence of CSP and CV in world literature.
