In the second fetus (b), the inferior vermis is small and mildly elevated. The vallecula is wider with a higher torcular Herophili. In the third fetus (c), the inferior vermis is absent (or very small) and there is upward tilting of the superior vermian remnant with markedly widened vallecula and wide continuity of the fourth ventricle with a large retrocerebellar space and a high torcula.
