The interthalamic adhesion is a midline structure that connects each thalami at the medial surface. It is about 1 cm in dimension. Sometimes it cannot be found. It has been questioned whether there is a correlation between absence of the interthalamic adhesion and pathological conditions. Therefore various clinical and postmortem studies carried on related with the absence or presence of this structure. In this case, we observed that the interthalamic adhesion was absent in a 39-year-old female cadaver. We presented our case and discussed the literature to contribute the postmortem investigations.
