1. A multilayer ceramic capacitor, comprising:
a body including a dielectric layer and first and second internal electrodes disposed with, and directly contacting, the dielectric layer interposed therebetween in a stacking direction and disposed in point-symmetry with each other;
first and second connection electrodes penetrating the body in the stacking direction and connected to the first internal electrode;
third and fourth connection electrodes penetrating the body in the stacking direction and connected to the second internal electrode;
first and second external electrodes disposed on both surfaces of the body opposing each other in the stacking direction and connected to the first and second connection electrodes; and
third and fourth external electrodes spaced apart from the first and second external electrodes and connected to the third and fourth connection electrodes,
wherein at least one of the first or second internal electrode is entirely spaced apart from an outer edge of the dielectric layer, and
in a cross-section perpendicular to the stacking direction, the first and second connection electrodes penetrate a region between an outer edge of the second internal electrode and the outer edge of the dielectric layer, or the third and fourth connection electrodes penetrate a region between an outer edge of the first internal electrode and the outer edge of the dielectric layer.
