Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzs Chavlmn / M / 3 1/4 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O seizures since birth.
H/O delayed speech.
M.R.I of the brain was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted, proton and T2 Weighted axial images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted coronal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
There are ill-defined hypointense areas (nearly isointense to CSF) in the periventricular deep white matter on the T1 Weighted images. These are seen to turn hyperintense on the proton and T2 Weighted images. Hyperintense areas are also noted in bilateral centrum semiovale, left more than right. Resultant periventricular white matter loss is noted.
There is slight thinning of the corpus callosum.
Both the 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.
Incidental note is made of enlarged adenoids.
Altered signal in the periventricular deep white matter and in bilateral centrum semiovale, left more than right and slight thinning of the corpus callosum may be due to hypoxic-ischemic insult-periventricular leucomalacia.
