Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O left trigeminal neuralgia since 0000 which has increased since 3-4 years.
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 coronal images.
Limited MRA sequence was obtained through the brainstem.
There is no focal area of altered signal intensity within the brain parenchyma.
Both the lateral, third and the fourth ventricles are normal. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midline structures.
There is seen a vascular twig along the course of the left trigeminal nerve superior and in close relation to the left trigeminal nerve (film 5). There is however no deformation of the root entry zone of the left trigeminal nerve. Small vascular twigs are also noted superior to the left seventh and eighth cranial nerve complex and inferior to the right seventh and eighth cranial nerve complex without deforming their root exit zones.
No abnormality is detected in the brain parenchyma per se.
