Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzlya Glmn / F / 32 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzzare.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O headaches since 3-4 years.
C/O ? convulsion with loss of consciousness for 10-12 hours on 00.00.00.
M.R.I of the brain was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted , proton and T2 Weighted axial images.
3 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted coronal images.
5 mm thick FLAIR coronal images.
There are seen a conglomeration of multiple, well-marginated, hyperintense lesions with a peripheral hypointense rim on the proton and T2 Weighted images in the subcortical white matter in the right posterior parietal region. This lesion appears hypointense to normal white matter on the T1 Weighted images and measures approximately 1.1 x 0.5 x 0.6 cms. An intermediate signal intensity inclusion is noted within this lesion, best appreciated on the coronal T1 Weighted images (scan 106.7) which may represent a scolex. There is perilesional edema with effacement of the sulcal spaces and minimal indentation on the right lateral ventricle, posteriorly.
The left lateral, third and the fourth ventricles are normal. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
An approximately 1.1 x 0.5 x 0.6 cms sized conglomeration of multiple small lesions in the subcortical white matter in the right posterior parietal region follows the signal characteristics of neurocysticercii in the colloid-vesicular stage.
