Please add the following terms as synonyms of “brain ventricle” where applicable

new SYN: cerebral ventricle
new SYN: region of ventricular system of brain

Then, add new child terms of "abnormal brain ventricle morphology [MP:0000822]"

dilated brain ventricle
DEF: the luminal space of one or more of the four communicating cavities within the brain that are continuous with the central canal of the spinal cord is increased in volume or area, usually with an increase in contained fluid
SYN: dilated brain ventricle(s)
SYN: dilated cerebral ventricle(s)
SYN: ventricular dilation

NOTE: Make this a parent term of "dilated fourth ventricle [MP:0000829]", "dilated lateral ventricles [MP:0000825]", and "dilated third ventricle [MP:0000827]")

absent brain ventricle
DEF: absence of one or more of the four communicating cavities within the brain that are continuous with the central canal of the spinal cord
SYN: absent cerebral ventricle(s)
SYN: ventricular agenesis
J:115337, J:45781, J:58622, J:163108

absent fourth ventricle
DEF: absence of the irregularly shaped cavity in the rhombencephalon, normally located between the medulla oblongata, the pons, and the isthmus in front, and the cerebellum behind; the fourth ventricle is continuous with the central canal of the cord below and with the cerebral aqueduct above, and through its lateral and median apertures it communicates with the subarachnoid space
J:171291
See ticket #1647 for synonyms of fourth ventricle

absent third ventricle
DEF: absence of the narrow cleft located inferior to the corpus callosum, within the diencephalon, between the paired thalami; its floor is formed by the hypothalamus, its anterior wall by the lamina terminalis, and its roof by ependyma; it communicates with the fourth ventricle by the cerebral aqueduct, and with the lateral ventricles by the interventricular foramina
J:62635
See ticket #1646 for synonyms of third ventricle

absent lateral ventricle
DEF: absence of the cavity in each of the cerebral hemispheres derived from the cavity of the embryonic neural tube; lateral ventricles are separated from each other by the septum pellucidum, and each communicates with the third ventricle by the foramen of Monro, through which also the choroid plexuses of the lateral ventricles become continuous with that of the third ventricle
J:152121
See ticket #1645 for synonyms of lateral ventricle

collapsed brain ventricle
SUGGESTED DEF: the luminal space of one or more of the four communicating cavities within the brain that are continuous with the central canal of the spinal cord is severely reduced in volume or area, possibly due to reduced or absent cerebrospinal fluid production; collapsed ventricles can be a sign of increased intracranial pressure and accumulation of water in the brain parenchyma
SYN: collapsed cerebral ventricle(s)
SYN: ventricular collapse
