Liliequist's membrane is mostly described as having a diencephalic leaf, mesencephalic leaf, and diencephalic-mesencephalic leaves in the literature. Also different descriptions of the prepontine membranes were reported. In this study, we visualized the regular structural forms of membranes without disturbing any attachments and defined infrachiasmatic and prepontine safety zones. We discussed the clinical significance of these structures.
