Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz Kalmn / M / 36 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O 3 episodes of sudden onset of giddiness with fall and loss of consciousness in last 4 months.
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.
There is a small nodule following grey matter signal intensity on all the pulse sequences in the subependymal lining along the lateral wall of the body of the right lateral ventricle. This most likely represents a subependymal heterotopia.
There is no focal area of altered signal intensity within the brain parenchyma per se.
The hippocampal complex is unremarkable on either side.
There is mild fullness of the third and both the lateral ventricles. Also seen is mild prominence of the cerebral cortical sulci and cerebellar folia bilaterally.
The fourth ventricle is normal. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
The MRI features are suggestive of :
1. A subependymal heterotopia along the lateral wall of the body of the right lateral ventricle.
2. Mild prominence of the cerebral cortical sulci and cerebellar folia bilaterally.
