Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz Kumlmn / M / 29 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O 3 episodes of seizures (1st in January 0000, 2nd in May 0000 and 3rd in February 0000).
CT Scan s/o granuloma. Patient received treatment for cysticercus in January 0000.
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.
3 mm thick Fast Scan (T2 *) coronal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
There is a well-defined popcorn shaped lesion in the right frontal region which measures approximately 1.3 x 2.9 x 1.6 cms. This lesion shows isointense areas at the periphery with a hyperintense centre on the T1 Weighted images. The periphery is seen to turn hypointense on the proton and T2 Weighted images and blooms on the Fast Scan (T2 *) images while the centre is seen to turn hyperintense. There is no surrounding edema or mass effect.
Both the lateral, third and the fourth ventricles are normal. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midline structures.
The MRI features are suggestive of a lesion in the right frontal region which measures approximately 1.3 x 2.9 x 1.6 cms. and
represents an occult vascular malformation.
